I specialize in guitar lessons for beginner and intermediate students. I create customized lesson plans for every student so you're not stuck having to practice music you don't enjoy.

My focus is to get you playing guitar as fast as possible. With the right tips we will improve your current skill level and target your particular goals.
You'll learn proper technique and I'll make sure you don't learn any bad habits.
Most importantly, we'll have fun playing guitar!
Right now my teaching schedule is full and I have a waitlist for anyone in the Vancouver area who would like to take in-person lessons with me.
Please note: I am only taking students for in-person lessons right now.
Your First Guitar Lesson
We start by chatting about your goals. I will ask you what your experience is with music and guitar (and if the answer to that is "no experience whatsoever," fantastic!), then we'll talk about the kinds of music you want to play.
If you're a beginner: I'll give you a tour of the guitar, so you know which way is up, and how to strum it with correct technique so you won't learn any bad habits. Then we'll get working on your first song.
I'll show you how to play the song and give you some extra tips to make it easy. At the end of the lesson you will have a better idea of what it will take to learn guitar, and you'll walk away being able to play at least one song!
If you have some guitar experience: First we will talk more about what you know already so I can get an idea of where we should start. Then I'll give you some ideas on directions we can take in the lessons that will boost your skill level and understanding of music.
We'll do some jamming or work on a specific song. At the end of the hour you'll have a better idea of what's required to take your guitar playing to the next level, and a plan for doing so.
