General Music

I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music and received an education which included General Music. I have been teaching for over 30 years private lessons in Guitar and Bass.

Guitar

I started playing guitar at the age of twelve. From there I took private lessons and at the age of 24, I studied for 4 years at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA graduating in 1980. I have been teaching private guitar and bass lessons since 1982 and I have seen many of my students over the years, go on to become accomplished musicians. My teaching method consists of teaching all the fundamental skills a person needs to be successful in learning how to play an instrument. I teach each of the notes on the Fret board, memorization of all the commonly used chords, bar chords, and strumming patterns. I then move on to simple songs and gradually go on to more complex music as the student becomes more comfortable and ready to advance.

Music History

I graduated from Berklee College of Music and studied the History of Music as well as I am well versed in the History of Music since being a full-time musician and teacher for over 30 years.

Music Theory

I have been a professional guitar and bass teacher for over 30 years and graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston. I love to teach and see my students attain success in their musical ability and talent.
