Acoustic Guitar Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate

I am able to teach Contemporary Guitar and other fundamental knowledge that can allow each student to discover their own style. We can explore different learning methods, music theory as well as creative composition. I perform in various bands with guitar and would love to share these experiences with the student. I am particularly interested in Jazz and Blues guitar.
