"Music and guitar playing is my life. I approach teaching as an opportunity and a privilege to meet and inspire new people. It is very important to me that my students learn to play whatever style they want to play, and that they have a great time doing so. I believe that in order to grow as a musician and to truly appreciate the guitar, lessons should stretch the student’s learning capacity while maintaining a fun and friendly environment."
