Jazz, Rock, Blues, Folk, Improvisation





All lessons are given in my home teaching studio, located in NE Portland.



Lessons are once a week, half an hour, and one on one. All you'll need to bring with you is your guitar, I've got everything else we'll need (amp, cables).



No books necessary,

all written Material, audio, and video provided.

All printed material is provided in lessons, no books necessary! In addition to the included written material the audio of the lesson (song) is available online via the many online music streaming sites, or iTunes (if the student wishes to purchase the song). A video of myself performing the material at a slower tempo is also available online. So that gives you a very experienced teacher, written material, digital audio, and video!

Makeup Lessons

Makeup lessons are offered as long as notice of cancellation is given 24 hours in advance. Just send me an email and we’ll set up a makeup lesson, which, as scheduling allows, can be set up for either that week or in the following weeks to come.

Guitar lessons are $140/month (cash or check). Months with 5 weeks contain a free lesson (flat rate regardless of there being 4 or 5 weeks in the month).
