Teaching Style


We can tailor a program to fit those goals and needs while providing a fun, healthy environment for learning. We will nurture the natural strengths and develop the students untapped abilities. This "practical guitar" approach can fit and help students at every level.


His "practical guitar" teaching method stands as the cornerstone of his instruction to this day. He describes this approach as "laid back yet ambitious".  In his words: “I never want students, adults or children, to feel like they are at a ‘job’ when they are at Red Leaf…This is a getaway for them to nurture their artistic side away from daily obligations and distractions.”
