Guitar/music instructor


40 simbi per hour

I can teach you whatever you want. Total beginner, advanced harmony, advanced techniques, specific songs/music, by ear or reading music (I recommend both!). I can teach idiosyncratic stylings of any music associated with the electric guitar and can offer new approaches to technique, melody, harmony, visualizing the fretboard, etc. to get you out of a musical rut.

Training & Qualifications

I have taught individual lessons occasionally for over a decade. Most recently I have taught out of Ev Stern's Maple Leaf Music Space. My current teacher bio can be viewed here:

In addition to guitar I can teach ukulele, other strings (banjo, mandolin, etc.), bass, saxophone, music theory, jazz harmony, etc.

Availability & Preferences

Evenings, weekends...

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
