Guitar Lessons

— GUITAR LESSONS ARE TAILORED TO EACH STUDENT–Unlike Many Guitar Teachers, I Let Your Goals and Musical Preferences Guide the Course of the Lessons.  I Believe There Are Certain Skills That Most Guitarists Should Learn, But Ultimately, You Are in Control.  Here Are a Few of the Things to Choose From:
