What can you learn?

I’m here to help you become a better guitar player. I have a passion for teaching guitar lessons using a student-centered approach.

We will work together to define your goals as a musician, and I will develop a customized lesson plan to help you reach your goals. We will use songs that you choose to help you learn new techniques and musical concepts.

I’ll teach you songs, scales and chords using guitar tablature, which is easy for beginners to learn. And if you want to learn standard musical notation, I can teach you that, too.

My goal is to help my students learn to play the guitar and have fun!

Here are some of the techniques and concepts we can cover during your guitar lessons:

• Scales (major, minor, modes, pentatonic, blues)
• Chords (open, barre, inversions, sevenths, etc.)
• Improvisation
• Rhythm technique and groove playing (strumming, finger-picking)
• Advanced techniques (hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, bends, vibrato, etc.)
• Gear beyond your guitar (amps, pedals, effects)
• Reading tablature and standard notation
• Music theory
• Rock, blues, pop, R&B, country and folk styles
• Tuning, setup and maintaining your guitar

Why EW Guitar Lessons?

I’ve been teaching private guitar lessons for over six years, and I’ve been playing and performing guitar for more than 20 years. I play and teach both acoustic and electric guitar and bass in rock, blues, country, pop, R&B and folk styles. I use my experiences as a live music performer to help give my students practical advice for being a musician.

I hold a Master’s Certificate in Guitar from Berklee Music, a division of the Berklee College of Music. I also studied elementary education at the University of Maryland.

My students have performed on stage in Severna Park High School’s “Rock ’n Roll Revival” shows, with bands and at open mic nights and blues jams. One of my students went on to graduate from Berklee College of Music.

I’m a full-time guitar teacher. That means I won’t be distracted by another job. I’m available to you in-between your lessons if you have questions.
