I have taught guitar and bass for 30 years beginners through advanced, amateur and professional. I except serious students only, helping you achieve your musical goals. I teach all styles, blues, rock, jazz, gospel, folk and fingerstyle guitar. I have spent 30 years as a professional touring and session musician.

I can help you learn and enjoy the guitar or bass. But you must practice and study at home or the lessons will be in vain.
Good practice is like a good workout, it must be done at least 3 days a week, 20 to 30 mins a day.

Approved subjects are in bold.
