I've been in several regional bands, recorded 2 original albums & various demos. While teaching at West Music, I've also developed & taught group guitar courses for Kirkwood Community College. Previously I’ve worked full time for Sam Ash & West Music. My influences include a strong background in classic rock, acoustic rock, 80s, and classical guitar. My method teaches sight reading, music theory, TAB, chord strumming, and improvisation, as well as learning the student's favorite songs. Each student progresses at own pace, and a heavy dose of fun & laughter are included free with each lesson!
