"To educe means to draw out or to evoke that which is latent: education then means drawing out the person's latent capacities for understanding and living, not stuffing a (passive) person full of preconceived knowledge"

Stephen Nachmanovich, Free Play

If you are passionate about music & the guitar we will get along real well.

Whether your interest lies in the electric or classical guitar I can offer a

structured program of study based on my experience studying under

some of the leading artists of both musical worlds.


During the past 14 yrs I've been fortunate to work with hundreds of

stundents in various settings from private sessions to groups & ensembles.

This experience has allowed plenty of time to work with complete

beginners as well as advanced students of various ages.


My practice is informed by both the classical tradition & the

jazz/Improvisation practices as well as playing & working with lots of

musicians from around the globe.


  • Private Instruction in Contemporary & Classical Guitar

  • Harmony/Theory & Ear Training

Special classes are also offered for guitarists struggling with injuries from

inadequate posture & technique. Proper left & right hand techniques are
