If you are starting from scratch or have been playing guitar or bass and want to get better, I'd love to help you out. You'll have FUN and learn a lot in the process! I teach private lessons from my home in Los Angeles via FaceTime, Google Hangouts or Skype.
I've been a professional guitarist for 15 years and toured as Norah Jones' guitarist for six years as well as with Ben Kweller (RCA), The Redwalls (Capitol), Tracy Bonham (Grammy Nominated), Daniel Johnston, Bedouine and many more. I've also played with Bob Weir and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead as well as Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman from Phish. I've played on every major late night TV show (Conan, Letterman, Fallon, etc) and most music shows as well (Austin City Limits, Storytellers, Jools Holland, etc).
I am in my mid-30s and have been playing guitar and bass for 30 years.
I took lessons from a young age and majored in music playing the guitar. I can teach rock, country, blues, jazz, punk, improvisational technique, theory, songwriting and sight reading to people of all ages.
I take a very fun and patient approach to my lessons. I try to mold the lesson around the player since everyone plays differently and has different styles. I really try to find what the player wants to do and teach him or her those things while adding some theory and fundamental techniques to back up the songs. I have excellent references.
