Who & What I Teach

Who I Teach

I teach students ages 5-adult. I have experience teaching both kids and adults (music, sailing, English, and creative and nonfiction writing). I genuinely enjoy teaching beginners, and no prior music experience is required.

I give in-home and studio guitar lessons in San Francisco, and lessons to students around the world on Skype.


What I Teach

I specialize in teaching beginning and intermediate electric and acoustic guitar, developing personal style, and songwriting. I’ve worked with many “advanced beginners” who are interested in breaking through to a higher level of playing. I also teach beginning ukulele and mandolin.

Whether you want to learn a certain song, start writing your own, enjoy playing more, jam with friends, or wail at the upcoming talent show, I create a personal curriculum for each of my students to take them beyond their goals in a fun and engaging way.
