Specializing in acoustic, classical & electric guitar!
I've been teaching guitar in both private and group settings for 17 years now and am now accepting students in the Chicago-land area. I specialize in acoustic, classical, rock, pop, metal & more. As of 2019, I maintain a teaching studio out of my home in Wheaton, IL.
My first goal as an instructor is to get an idea of what the student's goals are as a guitarist, and then we start working towards that goal. This means that while the basic concepts are covered (chords, some sight-reading in most cases, scales, etc), no student curriculum is exactly the same. After a few months of studying with me, no matter what style of music, we will have learned notes, chords, and songs that are of interest to the student. Then, we will discuss how all of those elements tie together and map out a practice routine. A goal I have for every student is to create a realistic, efficient, and enjoyable practice routine that produces results.
