Fun, experienced tutor in writing, reading, and music

I've played guitar for at least 30 minutes every day since I received one as a gift on my 12th birthday. That makes it nearly 13 years, now. I studied under a classically trained guitarist who'd been playing for 40 years and learned a great deal about chord theory and musicianship. I've taught several people (with skill levels ranging from "I've never held an instrument" to intermediate experience) how to play, trying my best to be a patient, thorough teacher. I like to focus not only on sheet music, but on helping the student learn the music they love so they can interact with it directly. I' [more]
