Choose your skill level

Children’s guitar lessons

I have Diploma in Early Childhood Development, and a Doctorate in Music. This makes me uniquely qualified to give guitar lessons to children. My membership in the Alberta Registered Music Teachers Association gives me access to professional development opportunities, and to a community of music teachers across the province.
Parents please check my Parents Page for more information about my teaching approach, for advice on buying a guitar, and for reasons that taking guitar lessons is good for your child.

Adult guitar lessons

I have extensive experience working with adults, from beginners to professionals. Thirty years of experience include ten years teaching in a post-secondary setting.  Combined with a professional performing career, this has allowed me to acquire experience and materials which enable me to teach almost any style.
I believe that everyone has the ability to play the guitar. Because my approach focuses on creativity and on each student’s interests, lessons are stimulating and students are highly motivated. This is due to customized lessons using music that is relevant to each student. As a result, student satisfaction with guitar lessons is high.  If you want to find out more or take advantage of a free introductory lesson, click below to get started.
