Individual lessons are the best way to learn a musical instrument because lessons can be tailored to your specific needs, skills and interests. I currently provide lessons in guitar, bass, drums and music technology in Mariposa and El Portal, California. If you’re interested in taking lessons, please get in touch so I can answer your questions and find a time that works for you.


According to Radiohead, ‘Anyone Can Play Guitar’. So what are you waiting for? Whether you’re just getting started or wanting to build on what you already know, I can teach you the skills you need to play the music you love.


Bass guitar is the driving force behind a lot of modern music and the world needs more bass players! Learn how to create a groove with a drummer and compose bass lines that support the chords and melody of a song.


A dynamic drummer can turn a good band into a great band. Playing the drums is simply great fun, but there’s more to it than just hitting things with sticks. Take some lessons and learn how to combine simple rhythms and tones to create inspiring arrangements.


Because it’s a lot smaller than a guitar, the ukulele is a great instrument for young students or people that want an instrument that they can easily take anywhere they go. Also, the skills that you learn on a ukulele can be transferred to guitar later if you like.

Music Technology

In the past decade, computers have transformed the way musicians write, perform, record and share their music. Find out how you can use multitrack recording, samplers, drum machines and synthesizers to make the sounds in your head come alive.
