From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I'm a one man shop offering instruction in acoustic and electric guitar and bass. I'm a veteran musician and music pedagogy geek who believes that music and community are inherently intertwined. Music has led to adventure and friendships throughout my life and I teach to help others find the same.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I provide visual aides, a folder for take home materials, a plethora of equipment and a selection of instruments to suit any style. Students may bring their own instruments but may use the ones I have on hand for their lessons. All students should bring themselves and their enthusiasm.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My first job out of college was in public audit, which was as fun as it sounds. After about a year I knew I needed a change and my guitar teacher from back home had been encouraging me to start teaching. I figured sooner is better than later, made the leap and haven't looked back. No regrets :)
What do you love most about your job?
Besides playing guitar all day? It's absolutely the students. I experience their breakthroughs and their accomplishments with the same joy I felt for myself when I was learning to play. I love teaching adults, but being a role model to kids and living up to that role has been its own reward.
