I teach guitar (electric/acoustic), drums, bass and ukulele.  For acoustic guitar, I specialize in classical and flamenco styles.  For electric, I specialize in blues, rock, reggae, and metal shred styles.  I’m familiar with recording software such as ProTools and Logic, and can help teach some recording/production fundamentals if that’s of interest as well.  My lessons are conducted at Avanti Music Studios, a small private music school in the Ladd’s Addition neighborhood on SE Hawthorne.
