As my career has progressed, I have accumulated a repertoire of finger-style tunes, also available for weddings and functions, which I use on location with The Relatives, or on my own.
Many of my students have had their palettes enriched by finger-style guitar, as it gives them a diversion, straying away from conventional lesson material and allowing them to play unaccompanied, on their own terms.
I have been actively guiding students through various tunes and techniques for 12 years.
Amongst my existing archive of recreational players, I have produced many University level musicians who have continued their education and graduated with bachelor degrees; many of whom have begun careers in music with varying degrees of success.
I like to make my lessons fun, interactive and personalized; No 2 sessions are the same. It makes for a stimulating environment that is highly beneficial in the long term. A session with me will often end with a tune and have the mechanics weaved in sometimes without you ever knowing.
