Group Lessons

For guitarists, besides showing you “how” to play guitar, I will encourage you, make you laugh, and do everything in my power to create a wonderful environment for you to thrive. I post recordings of all my lessons on a password-protected guitar website where you can review everything we learn. I also host a fun and supportive online community where guitar players of various levels communicate their goals and triumphs.

Sign up for any level 1-6!

Private Lessons

Working together one-on-one, I can teach you whatever your are specifically interested in learning about guitar or songwriting (or combining them!), I can also help you to finish songs, arrange songs, or create a song for a special occasion like a birthday, wedding, or even a proposal! If you’re a performer working on music for a show and you need some coaching on how to do this or how to make it better, you’ve come to the right place.
