To me, a truly great teacher is one who fosters enthusiasm and a sense of gratification in each and every lesson. A passionate teacher will engage students and inspire them to be self-motivated in order to learn and grow as a musician.

Each and every lesson is custom tailored to my students' both immediate and long-term goals. I like to focus on little victories in the beginning, with an overall emphasis on building a thorough background in theory, technique, and musicality over the course of study - the foundation of which you will build upon your entire life.


I have a BSEd. in Music Education and consider myself a lifelong learner. There is no "one size fits all" approach to music tuition. Every student learns in a unique way and my lessons are built to suit that. At the end of each lesson, you will go home with a clear document of what we accomplished and what your goals are for the next lesson.

I offer instruction for all ages and abilities - from the complete beginner looking for their first acoustic guitar lesson to the intermediate/advanced player interested in taking their playing to a professional level. Topics that I frequently work with students on include improvisation, learning the notes up and down the guitar neck, compositional analysis, music theory, CAGED theory, the 7 modes, jazz guitar theory & soloing, moveable chords & scale shapes, and reading music & standard notation.
