I teach guitar lessons to beginner, intermediate, and advanced guitar students of all ages. I teach at students' homes, and will travel anywhere in NYC. I can also teach lessons via Skype for those who are not located near the NYC metro area. Please contact me for rates, scheduling, and with any questions you have.

In the guitar lessons, I teach music and not just guitar - that is, while teaching skills specific to the guitar, I also integrate music theory, note reading, improvisation, and composition. Lessons are tailored to individual students based on musical interests, goals, skill level, and learning style.

I have been playing guitar for over 20 years, have a BA in music (jazz focus), and have been teaching guitar for nearly 10 years. I've performed, recorded, and/or composed for a number of different bands/artists. My main project currently is instrumental soul band Ikebe Shakedown - we have three albums out on indie record labels and have toured throughout the US and Canada.
