My approach to teaching guitar is based on the true spirit of making music–focusing on melody, harmony, rhythm and a strong chord foundation.

Teaching key fundamentals in sequence combined with ear training provides you with the tools to unlock the guitar fretboard and express yourself freely in all genres.

Some things we’ll get into:

  • All 5 chord shapes and how to outline them
  • The 4 “Sounds” Major, Minor, Major 7, and Dominant 7
  • Triads and hearing the 1-3-5
  • Connecting chords, arpeggios, and scales
  • How chords and triads are directly related to LEAD guitar playing
  • Improvising, phrasing, and creating your own melodies
