1/2 Hour Lessons


I would recommend my half-hour lessons for younger learners. Sometimes, for younger learners, two half-hour lessons per week can be a great option to see quick progress during the term time.

1 Hour Lessons


One-hour lessons are the perfect time slot for those who want to learn guitar at a fast rate and see the quickest results. However, I would recommend this for students who are over 12 years of age.

Currently I am both a Mobile Teacher. I believe there are great benefits to learning the guitar in your own home.

The most important thing for me, however, is that you feel comfortable wherever you learn and I will always strive to create a comfortable environment.
