This young guitar student from Dublin, CA inspires me!

Nico has been a guitar student of mine for almost 3 years. He loves to play classic rock, blues, reggae, and just jamming with friends. Over the last few years I have seen him make amazing improvements in his musical reading, soloing and song writing. Nico is a great student and a wonderful young man. In fact, I think that other parents will like him so much, that I have decided to invite him to be a student teacher for “Guitar Confidence”. [click to continue…]


Dr. Brian Richardson has been taking guitar lessons from me on and off for the last 16 years.

He loves jazz guitar and is an incredible vocalist. He loves to work on improving his musicianship skills of soloing as well as reading music and practical application in live performances yearly with my other students and myself at local restaurants in Bay Area . This helps all students like Brian to build their “Guitar Confidence” and take their playing to next level. Brian is a great student and humble man. It’s an honor to help guide Brian in the art of guitar performance.
