In over 35 years of experience, it is my sense that music and art were given to humanity to be life-enhancing- to bring an authentic meaningful enlivening to one's life.  To honor that understanding, I offer an attentive, mindful and caring atmosphere for learning that nourishes the creative in the context of wholistic and relational private styles- pop, rock, blues, folk, R & B, and electronic, teaching guitars, piano, voice, drums, singer-songwriter/songwriting, improvisation, aural tradition, composition, theory, and how to connect those discoveries with everyday living.  Each lesson is tailored to each individual student, honoring all varieties of tastes, learning styles and sensitivities.  All ages.  All levels.
