Want to learn how to jam? Play folk, pop, blues, rock, jazz? Work on songwriting? Learn theory? I specialize in beginning guitar lessons, but will teach at any level and any style of music. Lessons are tailored to meet your needs and be fun!
I teach at my studio in Southwest Portland. Not too far from Gabriel Park.
Beginning lessons are a specialty of mine! I have worked with students of all ages and greatly enjoy teaching them how to learn the guitar in a fun and quick manner.
On the intermediate level, I specialize in teaching students how to improvise, learning how to solo, music theory and more.
On the advanced level I have students who like to pick my brain on the more esoteric ways of playing, performing, songwriting and marketing consulting, and just more info on becoming a full-time successful and happy musician!
I like to teach my students how to play the guitar by teaching them music they like to listen to. With my lessons, you will learn the guitar by bringing in some of your favorite songs, and I will build lessons around those songs. We will get into theory and other technical aspects of the instrument as well. Some of my students have very specific things they want to work on, or some bring in books and I teach them from that. Basically, all of my students have different musical interests, styles, and learning approaches. So within the first lesson, we start to find the best approach to get you playing and learning the guitar in an efficient and fun way!
