Guitar,

Guitar

I have been a professional musician playing keyboards, guitar, and singing for the last 35 years. I start beginning guitarists out learning chords and selecting songs they want to learn. I also believe guitarists need to also know how to read music, so we work out of a method book to learn to read melodies, scales, etc. Lessons are a collaboration, so students get to help determine the direction we take with lessons.

I have been working as a professional musician for 35 years playing piano, keyboards, guitar, and vocals. I have learned singing techniques from many of the famous singers I have worked with. I will not try to turn my students into opera singers.
