Teaching that Begins with the Student

I don't teach guitar, I teach people.

When I began Columbia Guitar Studio in 1986 I based my teaching on the notion of providing patient, high-quality teaching at a price just al little bit lower than the local music store.Thirty years later, I am happy to report the studio has helped hundreds of would-be players realize their playing potential. Everyday at CGS metal guitarists shred, banjo players frail, bassists slap and pop and young classical guitarists phrase their way through four-hundred years of repertoire. All these endeavors are motivated by a strong commitment to elements of technique, musicianship, and repertoire. 

  • Patient and Clear teaching of technique, musicianship, and repertoire
  • Weekly take home instructions and a guitar-dedicated studio to encourage your practice
  • Performance opportunities
  • Facetime flexibility.
