Guitar

I have been performing and teaching on the guitar for the past 12 years. My students have ranged in age from 6-80. I have an undergraduate degree in guitar performance from Western Connecticut State University and a masters in Guitar from Shenandoah Conservatory.

I enjoy teaching all styles of music. I strive to teach my students the music they want to learn while at the same time giving them a strong background in guitar technique and music theory.
