I’ve been teaching private lessons and seminars for over twenty years. I love helping students meet their goals. I’ll work with you to help you design a practice routine that works with your schedule and maximizes your time on the instrument. Email me for rates and availability.
PRIVATE LESSONS - You can study with me in person if you live in or are visiting the New York City area.
SKYPE - I offer one hour skype lessons. We’ll decide on a topic before the lesson and I’ll send you any PDFs and backing tracks if the lesson calls for it.
VIDEO EXCHANGE - I also offer video exchange lessons for students with busy schedules or folks who just have a quick question about one topic. Just send me a video not exceeding five minutes with one question and maybe some playing examples. Once payment of $30 is received I’ll send you back a ten minute video lesson.
SEMINARS - I offer seminars covering country, rockabilly, blues, rock and western swing. They can be tailored to fit different durations from day long seminars to full week seminars.
As an educator I’ve carried a full schedule of private students for over twenty years and I have authored seminars, magazine columns and instructional courses.
