Professionally trained guitarist with 20 yrs experience teaching students of all ages.

Methodology

I have taught very many students of all ages and I emphasize a strong foundation in standard rudiments of music is essential to being a successful student. Elements of rhythm, reading and playing for fun are a part of every lesson. The goal is to make you a capable player, a life learner and to be able to have fun with your instrument.

Background

I went to the Crane School of Music in NY where upon graduating I took a position teaching and directing the guitar department at the St. Lucia School of Music in the West Indies. I held that post for 4 years before returning to NY where i taught privately and performed and worked as a professional musician in NYC.
I have recently moved to the St. Louis area and I'm currently building a student base here.
