We offer one-on-one instruction combining traditional methodology with modern teaching techniques, including interpretation of tablature, rhythm, theory and composition for lesson-only students and those involved in the performance groups.

Beginning students are taught first position / open chords, scales and arpeggios as well as the fundamentals of music theory [and tuning!]. Intermediate and advanced students continue to perfect these skills, music theory and are guided in the development and performance of their own personal styles.

Private lessons are designed to develop independent musical skills as well as to support the instruction received in jam sessions. Ensemble playing enhances a student’s ability to hear and respond to music as it is most frequently played. The group setting also provides powerful social reinforcement for music appreciation and encourages practicing.
