What YOU CAN learn

Curricula will cover methods for different types of players, whether it’s beginners learning how to strum chords, intermediate players wanting to get over the barre chord hump, advanced players wanting to learn note-for-note guitar solos, or jazz musicians wanting to learn how to improvise to chord changes and play the chords and melody at the same time.

Each student receives a customized lesson plan created around their distinct learning styles and desired goals.

I understand!

Taking lessons with someone who you have not yet met can sometimes be intimidating, so before committing to a lesson or a package, I'd love to discuss your goals, concerns, playing style, abilities, or other questions that you may have about your musical journey.

Let's get to know each other!
