About the instructor

After some time attending Berklee school of Music in Boston I took some time off from college. I continued my music education here in Colorado studying privately for a while with jazz guitarist Dale Bruning and classical guitarist Sam Guarnacia who was the head of the D.U. classical guitar program at the time.

It was around 1985 that I started teaching guitar at a Villa Music located in the old South Glenn Mall. After Villa music closed I moved my students to a Crescendo Music which was locally owned music store near downtown Littleton. I taught there for many years until owner Steve Smith closed the doors in 2002. After Crescendo Music closed I moved my students to Denver Music Institute for a couple years.

Since 2004 I have been teaching out of my own office space located on South Broadway in Littleton and typically maintain a full teaching schedule that is primarily referral based.

I now have been teaching guitar privately for over 25 years and through practical experience have learned much about teaching the instrument. One of the many benefits of private lessons is that it offers the opportunity to customize each lesson the student’s personal needs. This individualized lesson format makes it possible for me to teach the foundations of music within the tastes and interests of each student so that they can learn all their favorite songs as they develop their skills as a guitarist and musician.

My wife Lisa and I are the proud owners of two mixed breed dogs. Nica takes her job as good will ambassador quite seriously and accompanies me to my teaching space on a regular basis.

 From my earliest teaching experiences I have found that the study of a musical instrument enriches ones life and I feel fortunate to be able to help and encourage people to play guitar and make music.
