I've been playing guitar for 38 years and teaching guitar for the last 28, including 11 years at Everett Community College and 15 years at Bigfoot Music. My main musical influences are Classic Rock bands like AC/DC, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin as well as most Blues music and Fingerstyle guitar. I encourage my students to play the music they enjoy, while incorporating elements of theory and technique, with the ultimate goal of improvisation and musicianship.
I’ve played Guitar for 46 yrs and taught professionally for 22 yrs. I'm also well versed at Slide Guitar (lap steel, Dobro) and Ukulele. I've toured with bands in the US and in Canada and also currently play local gigs. I teach all age groups from 7yrs. on up and specialize in developing personal creativity while expanding horizons in many styles ie. Classic Rock, Blues, Folk, Country, Jazz, some Classical, and Alternative. For younger school age students I encourage reading skills and practical theory as well as ear training. For more advanced students I encourage songwriting & vocal aspirations. Most importantly for all I emphasize the need to make it fun.
I have been a guitar teacher in Snohomish county for twenty three years. Lessons are on a one to one basis meeting weekly for forty minutes. I cover various styles of music, Alternative, Country, Rock and Standards. If you want to sing while you play, I encourage it and can help you. Reading music or just playing for fun. Give me a call and lets get started. Beginners welcome. Reasonable rates.
