What Style?

Though I have significant experience with both classical and jazz guitar, I primarily teach popular styles (blues, rock, country, folk, soul, R&B, funk etc).

Acoustic finger style playing is also one of my fortes as a performer and teacher.

If you feel sure that jazz or classical is your main interest, I would recommend finding a different teacher, and would happily help you out with some names.

However, I can certainly get you off to a strong start in either of those genres. If you are curious about different styles, and would like to have as many options as possible, I am probably a good man for the job. Specialized interests can always come later, once basic technique has been mastered.

I would love to answer any questions in more detail or set up your free trial lesson. Sometimes I get overbooked and there’s a short wait list. Sometimes we can start next week. It all depends. Please call or email to find out.
