I would love to tutor you on playing the guitar! I have been playing acoustic and electric guitar for years as well as teaching beginners. My method is to really listen to your wants and goals and tailor our time around that. My love for music and teaching others is what drives me. I am very patient and understand what it takes to help you enjoy playing the guitar.
I have played in many working Rock and Blues bands over the last several decades. I have also taught many students young and old how to play everything from open chord acoustic songs to hard rock electric guitar. I have my own method that will get you playing songs in short order. I can also teach a particular method that you have been assigned or possibly wish to learn.
As mentioned earlier, I have many years of experience playing professionally as well as teaching guitar.
I also have taken college level music classes (theory, history and guitar). I am still learning as well, I enjoy playing new songs and have wrote some music as well.
The true joy of teaching is seeing students really enjoying their playing. It is all about having fun! I love helping students get to that next level whether you are playing for fun or playing in a working band. Please contact me and learn more as well as scheduling a lesson.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
