TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I believe that everyone has the capacity to make music.  I encourage my students to experiment, collaborate, and listen while on their musical journey.  One guitar method does not work for everyone, because of this I am always trying to adapt to what I feel the student needs based on their learning style and musical preferences. It is important for teachers to be able to teach the same idea several different ways so the student has the best possible chance of absorbing the skill/information.  While I am always ready to recommend songs to play, I prefer to let the student pick the songs they have always wanted to play, even if the songs are above their current level.  The thrill of playing a song you love is hard to express with words,  I teach because I want others to experience this feeling as well.

Currently located in the Montavilla neighborhood of Portland, OR.  All lessons are taught at the students home or in my home studio.
