Music Lessons for Adults Are you an adult ready to learn music? Take lessons at my studio located in University Heights and learn guitar, bass guitar, or drums with me in an exciting space, where you can take your playing to the next level. I'm here to answer all your music related questions and take you step by step through the process of learning an instrument, whether you're just starting off or you have been playing for a while and need more guidance. From college students to retirees, I've taught them all and I constantly adapt my lessons to the needs of each student. I ask you from the first lesson what musical styles you want to learn more about and right away we start working towards that goal. From rock, to the blues, to everything in between, you'll learn the theory, techniques and music history to become a well rounded player. Keep practicing and we can eventually jam with me on drums, bass or guitar and you on the other instrument! It's a Rock school for adult students!

Music Lessons for Kids Parents, do you have a student that is interested in guitar, bass guitar or drum lessons? For younger students, I offer the convenience of in-home lessons in University Heights and surrounding areas. Rain or shine, your aspiring musician can learn guitar, bass or drums from the comfort of your own home. I enjoy working with beginners and I love seeing the dramatic improvement that my students make as they practice for each week's lesson. I have a curriculum of songs and styles that I teach, so that each student gets a great foundation in a diverse range of music. I also ask each of my students what music they like to listen to and guide them in learning the music that naturally interests them. After all, music should be fun and the student should look forward to practicing each week. Most of my students tend to commit to the lessons and not give up early on, so that they can reap the benefits of a lifetime of music.
