In addition to performing, I also teach fingerstyle guitar (standard and drop D), Irish bouzouki accompaniment (GDAD or GDAE), folk singing and song arrangement techniques. I'm available for private lessons in the Boston-area, Skype lessons from anywhere, and am happy to set up a lesson or workshop with interested students while I'm on tour.

Teaching style: 

I like to start with songs or tunes that a student loves and wants to play, and then design technical exercises and theory instruction around them. I’m happy to work with students who want to take a more formal, in-depth approach, heavy on theory and notation, as well as those who would prefer to stick to learning by ear or just learning songs for fun.

Get in touch if you'd like to chat about arranging a lesson or workshop.
