My guitar teaching career began when I was 14, and it continues to be a great source of joy in my life. I love the variety of musicians I get to work with each day.

I am a little different than other guitar teachers because I teach the fundamentals of music using a clear structure that I tailor to each student’s goals and learning style. 

Students develop a strong skill set to use in all kinds of musical situations, and many of my students perform all over the country, in various styles, earning their living from music.

Beginning - Advanced Level Private Guitar Lessons:  
One of the things I love about the guitar is that I don't think it can be mastered. While there is a finite amount of information you need to learn to become a good player, there are always new ways to see and apply those concepts. Everything always comes back to knowing the fundamentals of music, and I help students effectively master those practical fundamentals in a fun and supportive environment.  

Please email me at LeadCatPress@gmail.com to see if I have a morning, afternoon, or evening lesson time that works for you on Capitol Hill, or via Skype/FaceTime. Please include a little background information about your music experience as well as your goals, and what you hope to get out of guitar lessons at this time. If I don't think I'd be a good fit for you, I can recommend another guitar teacher.

I offer beginning, intermediate, and advanced level small group classes at my guitar studio on Capitol Hill. The way I categorize students is based purely on each guitarist's understanding and application of fundamental guitar skills, and students are asked to complete a self-assessment questionnaire so I can place them in the class that best matches their experience, interests, and goals. These questionnaires also help me develop the curriculum for each class, which is why the descriptions here are general. 

The 4 week classes provide structure and clear assignments during the course, and I also give direction for how to practice (and what to practice) after the class ends. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to email videos each week of their assignments so I can offer personalized attention. Classes begin when 4 students who share similar experience, interests, and goals have completed assessments and submitted payment.

4 WEEK BEGINNING LEVEL SMALL GROUP GUITAR CLASS
Sundays or Thursdays, TBD  $200, includes textbook (a $40 value) 
I group students according to their shared experience level, so sometimes this class is full of absolute beginners, and sometimes it's composed of guitarists who may have been playing for a few years but never learned the fundamentals as well as they'd like to know them. Our specific lesson plan i determined after I receive student questionnaires from enrolled students, but will generally include concepts in years one and two from my
online course.

4 WEEK INTERMEDIATE LEVEL SMALL GROUP GUITAR CLASS
Sundays or Thursdays, TBD  $200, includes textbook (a $40 value) 
Students will be taken through a course of study to help fill in gaps and provide a clear path leading to the next level of playing. Our specific lesson plan is determined after I receive student questionnaires from enrolled students, but will generally include concepts in years three, four, and five from my
online course.
