About Eric

I began playing guitar when I was 8 years old. I have spent the last three years taking private lessons and doing coursework. My live performance experience includes venues around Chicago and live performances with my students. I have been employed as a guitar instructor in Chicago and have decided to start offering private lessons to a greater number of people in the Los Angeles area. Teaching guitar for me is an awesome experience no matter what skill level the student. It is with my ability that the student will be able to grow and uncover their own motivation, creativity, and passion for guitar and music as a whole.

I am always up to date on new guitar techniques, music, and theory concepts therefore I am always learning myself and never teach outdated or unpractical methods. I love to read music theory books and articles about guitar and music. In terms of lessons, all techniques and music theory concepts will be reinforced by my own customized lesson plan as well as songwriting assignments. This is done to encourage creativity and critical thinking towards new concepts. I am also consistently updating lesson material and ensure the best possible methods of learning to the student.

Guitar should be simple. In fact, everything should be simple. That's why I focus on lesson structure and organization. All of my lesson plans are tailored to the student. I don't have a standard lesson plan that every student learns, (except for the basics). Everyone is unique and should be treated as such. My lessons create a personalized, challenging, and fun educational experience for students of all ages and skill levels.

I teach all skill levels and all ages. Guitar is a pathway to exploring something new and exciting -and it's your creativity, unleashed.
