TEACHING STYLES:  Rock, Pop, Country, Blues, Metal, Method, Theory & Technique




Musical Achievements: Close to 40 years playing experience, 20+ years teaching experience, Hartford Music Conservatory Graduate, various national signed band auditions, member of approximately 20 different active performing bands throughout career, approximately 1700 performances, recorded 2 original “Bridges to Venus” CDs, 10 year tenure as original guitarist for local 80’s tribute “Aquanett”, currently performing with adult humor based rock comedy parody “Mullethead”.

Approach To Teaching: After teaching for over 20+ years I’ve developed an approach that works for everyone. I simply ask each student what they may want to get out of lessons, achieve musically, and what future musical goals they may have. With that insight it helps me direct lessons to where each student wants to end up. Everyone is on their own musical path. Therefore the lessons are about what each person wants to achieve. I always tell students they’ll get out of it what they put in. They’re in control of where they end up. I show them how and what they need to know to get there.

 In My Own Words: “I have this little philosophy I call “The 3 ‘P’s’ of Guitar Playing”……’P’ for Practice, ‘P’ for Patience, and ‘P’ for Persistence”. With a methodology like that how can you go wrong? Answer? You can’t…..”
