Who and What I Teach

Who I Teach:

I work with both kids and adults, ages five and up.

I teach beginning and intermediate guitar instruction.

I have spent my entire life performing, and have over 15 years of guitar experience.  I have been performing professionally in the Baltimore/Washington area for over 10 years – including local venues like Rams Head and Stan & Joe’s.

In addition to my background in music, I have a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from The University of Maryland College Park, along with professional experience in higher education, in an advising and counseling capacity.

What you will learn:

I specialize in teaching beginning and intermediate guitarists who want to play rock, pop, blues, or folk music on the acoustic or electric guitar. Some of my students want to be the next Taylor Swift or John Mayer, others dream of strumming Beatles tunes with their family by the campfire (or impressing the rest of your office with some sweet blues licks).

In addition to guitar technique, I incorporate performance and/or recording if my students are interested.  One of the biggest motivators in learning the guitar is having something to look forward to – a tangible goal.  At least once a year, I provide performance opportunities (typically at a local coffee shop or other venue) if my students are interested.  Additionally, many students enjoy having their music recorded so they can share with family and friends.  I can do both.

My favorite artists include Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Black Keys, Paul Simon, Jack Johnson, Mason Jennings, and the list goes on.  But as I mention in my teaching philosophy, I’ll teach you what you want to learn (I’ve played/taught everything from Taylor Swift to Frank Zappa)
