Kids, teens and adults.... 

  all levels and styles 

 Signing up for lessons is easy 

Just let me know your scheduling needs (days and times) and I'll let you know right away what I have open in my private teaching schedule.



 What We Do in Lessons 

I assess your background and interests and develop a structured, customized plan to help you meet your goals. We do more than play songs.  I integrate technique and music theory into most lessons.  I believe in age appropriate teaching.  I have a special methodology for kids under 10.  I don't teach an 8 year old like a teenager...and I don't teach a teen like an 8 year old.   


Rock, classical reading, big band jazz, symphonic metal, folk style fingerpicking.... there are many directions we can go.  After teaching more than 50,000 individual private lessons on the Eastside since 1991 I have done a lot of everything with students!   

 A More Complete Guitar Education 

I run Rock Band Classes, teach songwriting, record students' original compositions and run recitals.
