Growing up in Florida, I have been playing guitar and bass since I was a teenager. While living in Boston, I played in a number of successful local bands and was a fixture on the local scene sitting in with local bands. For the past six years, I was a instructor at the School of Rock in Boston where I gained much experience teaching a variety of ages and skill levels dealing mostly with kids from 8-18. I also taught several adults and lead a weekly adult ensemble.
One of the most frustrating things I found when I took lessons as a youth was an ignoring of the students interests and a push to things the student wasn’t interested in such as reading or jazz. I feel that lessons should be fun and inspiring. I want to help students reach their goals whether it’s playing in a band, playing songs they really enjoy, or understanding more the theory behind what they already know and can play.
Lessons are 45 minutes long. Contact me for rates and availability.
