About Guitar Lessons

I am currently offering guitar lessons in the Southern California/Orange County area, specializing in all ages, styles and levels of instruction. I offer a simple, practical method to reach any goal that you have with the guitar. Please check out my credentials in the Biography section of the website. 

My students have gone on to successful careers in music, and have been accepted into some of the best guitar programs in the world, including the USC Studio/Jazz guitar program.

I offer lessons in my home studio in Irvine, CA or online via Skype or Google + or FaceTime. For online lessons, you will need a computer, webcam and microphone, and a reliable high-speed internet connection.
