Teaching guitar, piano, bass and drums to students ages 4+ since 1976

I’ve been teaching guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 1970s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments.

I am a very enthusiastic teacher. I teach students how to read music. I also teach music theory and how to use this knowledge to play by ear. During piano lessons, I often accompany students on guitar and suggest a scale for improvisation so they can play the blues. During drum lessons, I often play bass so they can learn to groove.

I specialize in jazz improvisation on piano and guitar. I also teach recreational guitar and piano for adults, including classical and blues styles.

I coach bass players and drummers in playing stylistically correct grooves for jazz, rock and
Latin music.
