I have enjoyed music my entire life. It is my passion
to pass on the knowledge of being a musician.

Coaching for over 30 years and still loving it.

Music isn’t a one-size-fits-all experience.  That’s why my guitar courses are designed to be as unique as you are.

**Here’s what sets my courses apart:**

* **Positive and Encouraging:** Learning guitar should be fun! I create a supportive environment that fosters confidence and celebrates your progress.

* **Holistic Approach:** We’ll cover all the essentials, including **dexterity-building techniques, fun songs for ear training, and music theory** to help you understand the “why” behind the music.

* **Adaptable to Your Dreams:** My teaching method keeps pace with evolving musical styles. Whether you’re a beginner strumming your first chords, an advanced player looking to refine your skills, or even a **signed artist** seeking some extra polish, I’ll help you reach your musical aspirations.

* **Proven Success:**  I’ve had the privilege of teaching students of all skill levels, from complete beginners to seasoned professionals.  Many of my former students have gone on to successful careers in music, and I’ve even coached family members of well-known musicians!

* **Fast Results:** Most beginners experience the joy of playing a song within their first few lessons!

* **Comprehensive Resources:** Printable PDFs and backing tracks enhance your learning experience, ensuring you have the tools you need to practice and progress outside of lessons.

**My ultimate goal?** I want you to experience the **deep satisfaction and joy** that comes from making music.  Let’s turn your musical dreams into reality together!
