After twenty years of dividing my time between performing (which I love) and teaching (which I love equally), a couple of things became very clear to me: 1. As good as I am as a performer (and I have enough reliable outside information to believe that I am very good), I am much better as a teacher. 2. Too many people are teaching (especially guitar) who don't really know what they are doing, and are as a result shortchanging their students, and leaving them unable to become the best possible players. 3. If I were to continue dividing my time, I would be unable to give teaching the time and effort it needs to make me the best possible teacher, giving my students the advantage of every possible tool, method, idea, etc. to help them become the best possible musicians in the shortest possible time. 4. There is no way I could be OK with giving my students any less than my very, very best. So, I stopped performing, and began devoting all my efforts to teaching, and to continually becoming a better teacher. In short, I began my neverending inquiry into The Art & Science of Music Instruction, Science: I study anatomy, physics, physiology, psychology, Zen, yoga, various methods of physical training, neurology -- anything & everything that has a bearing on how people learn (especially how they learn music). Art: I study education, teaching methods, psychology -- again, anything that has a bearing on how people learn (especially how they learn music). And then I use what I learn to constantly improve my teaching. For example, I have learned that each person has his/her own unique learning style: the specific ways in which that person needs to receive information in order to learn. So, now, I study each student as we work, so I can gain an understanding of that person's learning style, and then build lessons designed to work with that learning style. And that's just one very small example. My mission is to teach anyone that wishes to work with me how to play well, to understand music thoroughly -- to have the richest possible musical life in the shortest possible time.

Mission: To provide the highest quality music instruction available. To help people learn to play music safely, well and as quickly as possible.
