Professional Experience

Teaching & Other Details
I use a syllabus I have worked on for years. Basic premise is to introduce beginner knowledge of the instrument by explaining theory behind it, then introducing beginner techniques through easy examples found in popular songs. I teach theory and fretboard navigation early to strengthen students as they move into intermediate level material, focusing on their particular tastes. Advanced students learn more on improvisation to incorporate techniques they are working on and I teach more advanced theory by actively writing music with students based on their own ideas. I always aim to keep students engaged and interested through all levels
Very flexible as I write my own schedule, but evenings and weekends are preferable. I am not available on Tuesdays.
Preferred Teaching Place
Prefer to work 1 on 1 with students in their own space. Will teach either at my home or in a classroom, very comfortable around groups.
