Greetings!

My name is Judy and I'm a professional guitarist, artist, singer-songwriter and teacher. I've been performing around the greater Bay Area for over 13 years and teaching private and group guitar lessons for over 9 years. I have also taught ukelele, some voice, and electric bass.

As a guitar (music) teacher, I work with a lot of kids (as well as adults) and beginners. I'm extremely patient, and I enjoy getting brand new guitarists up and running with proper techniques and good habits. I teach beginners the names of the strings, the parts of the guitar, how to hold the pick, and how to tune the guitar. I also teach them warm-up exercises and easy songs that are fun to play. Once a student is up and running, I tailor the lesson to the style of music they are interested in whether it's pop, rock, folk, blues, funk, r&b, or country. I can also teach intermediate and advanced levels of playing focusing on soloing, advanced chord forms, music reading, and theory.

My style is easy going, but not lackadaisical. I take teaching seriously and do my best to make the student feel comfortable. I give my students weekly assignments that I ask them to complete. However, if a student doesn't work on their assignment, I don't criticize or condemn them. I go over the assignment with them and gently remind them to play and work on the materials I've given.

I love teaching, music, and sharing my gifts with others. I look forward to working with you!
