I attended Bowling Green University and graduated in 1982 with a degree in business administration and accounting. I was actually a certified public accountant before I became a music teacher. I was extremely unhappy as an accountant and left that life behind to pursue music. Without any hesitation I can say that this was one of the best decisions I ever made. So enough with accounting, let’s talk music.

I’ve been playing guitar for 37 years. While at Bowling Green, I took many, many music courses. I later studied music at the Guitar Institute of Technology – Musician’s Institute in 1986 & 1987. After Musician’s Institute I began playing in bands on the club circuit here in Los Angeles and later throughout the country as a way to make money. There wasn’t a lot of money to be made as a struggling musician so I began giving guitar lessons to fund my weekly top ramen rations! In those early days my plan was to teach guitar until I got my break and hit the big time. In hindsight I realize that my big break was right in front of me as a guitar teacher. This is my dream job and every day I consider myself fortunate to be doing what I do. And honestly I feel like an extremely lucky guitar player who gets to teach others his passion…and gets paid for it!

I’ve now been teaching guitar and bass for 28 years and look forward to doing it for another 28! I teach all music styles including Classic Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, Folk, Alt Rock, Death Metal, Hair Metal, Reggae and even cartoon soundtracks. I accept students as young as six years old. Experience has taught me that most children need to be at least six years old in order to focus on the material and to consistently practice guitar.
