Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.  I’m a professional, classically-trained guitar instructor in the East Valley.

I first arrived in the Greater Phoenix Metro Area in 1996 after earning my Bachelor of Music in Music Education, with Magna Cum Laude Honors, from Shenandoah University Conservatory, where I studied classical guitar, jazz guitar, violin, piano, music theory, psychology, and many other related subjects. I have been providing quality music instruction to my students for over 25 years now. I work well with children as well as adults from a wide variety of backgrounds.

I offer training techniques for both acoustic and electric (steel and/or nylon string) instruments and provide instruction in popular music styles as well as formal classical guitar.

My instruction involves healthy, ergonomic, efficient, time-tested playing techniques combined with customized lesson plans, including original instructional materials, established texts, theoretical education, and material chosen by the student.
