Guitar Instruction

I first took up guitar in 1986 and taught myself how to play the Star Spangled Banner in the first day. My favorite music genres are heavy metal, hard rock, classical, flamenco and guitar rock instrumentals. I enjoy teaching basic to intermediate guitar techniques so if you have never picked up a guitar or are in a rut in your current learnings, let’s talk. I would love to help you reach that next level in your playing!


Charles was great at teaching me guitar. He is patient and has a very positive motivation style.
