Ages / Skill Levels Taught

I teach all skill levels, from beginner to advanced. The ideal ages to begin to learn a musical instrument is between 3-10

i like to start around 7-12 for guitar. Although adults progress well also. It is up to the individual how much they put into it and how they practice. Guitar students often have glitches in their playing and need some help. These are the students I most enjoy working with.

My influences are vast in that I love nearly all musical styles. Though I play classical. Why I play classical is because it's more challenging to me. The ability to expressive is incredible.
