Methodology

My background is in jazz, folk and blues guitar, and each of my lessons is tailored to my student according to their goals. My lessons are designed around a hierarchy of skills to ensure that only good and healthy playing habits are formed, and I believe that great teaching requires patience, thoroughness and a little humor!

Background

I am a Jazz Composition student at Temple University, specializing in guitar. I having studied with the best teachers available and I have taught lessons to all types of students, from toddlers to seniors. My students are able to pick up concepts on the guitar and learn something new and useful in every lesson!
