With over 12 years of experience, I offer an excellent program for beginners with detailed one-on-one instruction for developing the proper, fundamental techniques to becoming a successful player. I like lessons to have a relaxed, fun atmosphere where we can apply these fundamentals to learn the exact music you want to play. I do on-demand transcribing when requested for all styles of music. I specialize in theory, reading notation, finger style and improvisation in rock, blues, jazz, classical, r&b, reggae, country and latin. I've studied guitar and music from the age of 12. I attended Fullerton JC and received my AA there. I perform live and tour on a regular bases so my lessons are taught from a "real world" perspective. I have published a book through Hal Leonard and recorded with famed producer, Michael Vail Blum, who has recorded with Pink Floyd and Madonna. Let my education and performance experience teach you the right way to play guitar whether you are a beginner and new to music, or a seasoned player and you want to work on technique, reading or a new style. Feel free to call me with any questions!.
In addition to Lessons, I also perform solo guitar at Weddings and Private Events as well as with a band.
