About Me

University trained at the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, CT, USA. I teach all styles of music, with exception of classical guitar. My approach is based off of music theory, as I believe it is very important to have that base of knowledge. (Teach a man a fish... You know the saying) My favourite students are the the ones who are willing to put the time in. Learning the guitar is a difficult, yet incredibly fun and rewarding task. But it takes hard work and practice.

I have played in bands for many years and have gained a lot of experience. I am very well versed in all guitar equipment and working with other musicians.

Education

Bachelors of Arts in Music- Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz @ Hartt School of Music, W. Hartford, CT, USA
Area of Study- Jazz Studies - Guitar

Private Lessons for many years prior

Experience / Qualifications

Semi Professional Guitarist and Musician with 20 years of playing and 6 years of teaching experience. I have played in bands for that entire time and can teach how the equipment is used and how to jam with others.
