Ever dreamed of:

- Honing your musical skills?

Ways to Learn Music
How I can help:
- Private and group lessons/coaching in Mount Pleasant, Washington, DC.
- Online video/email correspondence lessons
- Skype-style lessons
- Guitar Kitchen
- I always recommend (to myself as well) to play along with music you love, whenever you get the chance. It may not “work” at first, so be prepared to be patient. But eventually it’s great!
My Basic Musical Philosophy
- Musicality over technicality
- Good technique + stay relaxed
- Play with people and records
