Driven by my own quest for ability on the guitar, I quickly discovered that there was more to it than what the books and videos were saying. Most were lacking the glue that connected a nice theory or method, back into the reality of really making things work on the guitar. Something to cut through the confusion of it all was needed.
"What evolved from my desire to master the guitar is a system that makes sense"
My focus here at the Guitar studio is to constantly strive to deliver a better way of learning to you the student. I have been teaching for over 20 years and the systems in place here are a result of my study and experience gained over time, both in music and other areas of my life. In particular areas that have taught me strategy, efficient movement and the combination of Nero science and Bio mechanics to increase potential and overcome difficulties. As musicians, the answers and solutions to the challenges we face as a beginner or an advanced player exist in our ability to Identify - adapt - and overcome those challenges using a self sustaining system.
