When it comes to teaching styles, my approach is to personalize our music lessons. I teach students of all ages and different skill levels; with that, you can assume there are many different expectations. My end goal is to be able to get each of my students to enjoy music, to think about it as more than notes on a sheet, and to meet their musical expectations for themselves. I am currently located in San Jose, California, but am available to travel to your home for lessons (traveling costs apply). Below are the services I provide. If you have any questions or would like more details please feel free to contact me!
I've been teaching guitar for the past 11 years. It is a beautiful instrument with many voices. I've taught different musical genres such as classical, fingerstyle, pop, rock, blues, and jazz. Since there are many different guitar styles, I recommend we meet prior to starting lessons so I can learn more about your expectations and your musical goals.
I am available to perform at your special event! My forte is easy-listening, classical, and finger-style guitar repertoires. Whether your special event is a wedding, anniversary, cotillion, or reception, I can play pieces that will match the atmosphere of your event. I am also available for accompaniment and rehearsals. Contact me for more information!
Booking available for 2018.
Other instruments I have taught are bass guitar, ukulele, and piano. This is popular with families who have children interested in different instruments or who aren't quite ready for guitar or would like to expose their children to a variety of instruments.
I have found that recording is a great tool to inspire students. They are surprised when they realize their improvements and how much potential they have! It's a great opportunity to experience what their favorite artist goes through when recording an album. (And parents are excited about having videos to share with their family and friends!)
