Philosophy
Learning to play music on the guitar is very enjoyable and good for your brain. No matter what age you are it's never too late to get started. Playing music is all about having fun. In addition to teaching from many guitar methods for various styles, I also incorporate my own original ideas and write music for my students as is needed. Many students have been surprised by how quickly they have learned and by how much fun they are having.
