The Art of Language and the Language of Art

Beginning at age 13 and continuing to the present day, I have explored the power of my own self-expression through musical performance.

As a self-taught musician, I don't encourage sight-reading or advocate for classical guitar playing, but focus instead on practical skills in the blues, rock, and folk idioms. Whether you're a public performer, or just a home hobbyist, if you're looking for tips to improve your playing, I hope to help you unleash your [more]

Fun, Experienced English and ESL Tutor from UC Berkeley

My training comes partly from formal classes, but largely from the process of personal discovery. As a guitarist/bass guitarist/singer/songwriter for 40 years -- including marketing myself for years in Nashville -- I've developed a natural expertise of the guitar that covers everything from basic chord shapes to aspects of R & B and jazz to rockin' out with my Fender Strat. In short, my background is perfectly suited for the beginning to intermediate guitarist interested in accompanying themselves or jamming with others. Let's do it! [more]
