Guitar & Mandolin Teacher

Genres: Blues, Country, Folk, Indie Rock, Jazz, Latin, Progressive, Something Else, Too cool to be categorized

I've been teaching guitar and mandolin for 30 years. I have written 3 books for
Hal Leonard Publishing for mandolin. I teach a variety of styles including, Folk, Jazz, Bluegrass, Irish, Latin, Pop, and Singer-Songwriter. I've recorded 4 of my own CD's as well. I teach complete beginners to other professionals wanting to learn something different. I help students who want to get to the next level and have helped  students get into UW School of Music as well as Berklee School of Music in Boston.
I can help you with technique, ear training, theory, sight reading, chord theory,
rhythm playing, scales, and soloing. I taught ages 4 to 84 and I'm very patient.
Lessons are for people who want to get better sooner than later!
