Education / Training

I studied from a GIT (Guitar Institute Of Technology)
Graduate for 4 years before opening up my own studio.
Prior to my studies I was a self taught player.
Starting out at the early age of eight years old the guitar just came naturally to me. When I turned 14 I wanted to enhance my natural ability so I began to work on my ear training by picking out intricate guitar solos and songs from the guitar heroes of the day. This included but is not limited to (Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Duane Allman, Ritchie Blackmore, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Pete Townsend) etc. You get the idea.
Being self taught I knew that college was not for me which is why I opted to study privately. This proved to be the right path to take. Once I began my studies I immediately understood music theory and how it applied to the guitar. It came to to me naturally just as playing the guitar did when I first started out.
Having said all of that my approach to teaching is from a layman’s angle. In fact I have developed a very Unique Guitar Teaching Method With 28 Years Of Proven Results.
My method is easy to understand and moves according to your ability, practice time, goals styles etc. Get in touch with me today via my website located on the overview section above.
