Guitar & Piano Lessons

For over two decades I've been teaching guitar, bass, ukulele and piano lessons to students of all ages. Whether they are just starting or honing their skills in a particular style, my focus is on helping the student find the path that brings them joy on their instrument.
We aim to work hard AND have a good time!
I attended the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and received a BFA- Performance Guitar in American Fingerstyle guitar. My students learn many styles of playing and it's my pleasure tailoring lessons to their interests.
$25 for half hour. $50 for a full hour.
Sliding scale available for those in need or for multiple family member time slots.
Openings for Fall/ Winter students extending lessons to Monday and Tuesday afternoon and evenings.
Near downtown, private studio, between Park St. and John Nolen, for 10 years. References from satisfied students and parents. ON-CALL LESSONS available at HeadStock Music or in your home.

"I've found our lessons together to be very comfortable and productive. I was surprised at how much of the music I learned over the past year I could still play from memory. My inklings are confirmed: I picked the right guy to teach me guitar...thank-you for helping me to bring more music into my life."
