I have been teaching private guitar lessons on a regular basis in the Minneapolis area since the beginning of 1995; beginning students through advanced. I teach electric guitar, acoustic guitar, slide guitar and electric bass.
I have also taught songwriting and arranging techniques to various students and am very experienced in working with multi-track recording formats. I am currently using Pro Tools.
My particular areas of interest are Blues, Jazz, R&B, Rock and Pop music.
Some of my favorite guitarists and major influences are: Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Wes Montgomery, Les Paul, etc… and many more.
Some of my other influences are; Chicago blues artists from the 1950’s-’60’s, French Hot Club style jazz from the 1930’s-40’s, British rock and psychedelic music of the 60’s as well as jazz from that same period. I like music of all types, if something is played well it will usually catch my ear.
