Music has and will always be my true passion. When I was 9 years old I heard Van Halen for the first time on the radio and immediately knew that I wanted to learn guitar. So less than a year later I found myself taking private guitar lessons and finding myself very satisfied with the experience of learning an instrument. I highly recommend everyone to learn at least one instrument throughout their life, there really is nothing quite like connecting with an object that can externalize all of your internalized feelings and emotions!
I have been playing guitar for over 11 years and consider myself to be an advanced player, so with that being said I am looking for the opportunity to help others achieve the same amount of skill and confidence I feel that I have. I have studied music theory for several years, played numerous shows over the course of my musical career, and have never once regretted my decision of learning guitar. I want to challenge my students and truly bring the best out of them and expose them to new styles of music they may have never considered playing. I play a wide variety of genres from country to metal to jazz to classical and am more than willing to tailor my lessons around the student's wants and needs.

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taken private guitar lessons for over 6 years. During the course of these lessons, I have studied music theory, advanced guitar techniques, and a multitude of different genres. I have prior experience of tutoring guitar in a private setting and feel very comfortable in engaging new students.
