I offer Skype lessons for students interested in improving their guitar playing and musicianship.  Lessons are tailored to the student's goals and skill level, and I only teach material that has real world application. My approach is to focus on music fundamentals, build a strong foundation, and empower students to become their own teachers. 

Areas of focus (in no particular order):

  • solo jazz guitar (chord melody);

  • music theory

  • jazz harmony

  • improvisation

  • rhythm guitar

  • arranging

  • blues guitar

  • sight reading

  • ear training

For over 25 years I have been teaching students of various skill level: beginning hobbyists, music majors in college, and professional musicians, such as Grammy Award winning artist D'Angelo.
