I teach private stringed instrument lessons in Little Rock. I'll teach anybody, old or young, who shows genuine

interest. I teach:

5-string, 3-finger, Scruggs-style bluegrass banjo

Guitar — Specializing in acoustic Bluegrass flatpicking — Also fingerstyle, bluegrass rhythm, folk, acoustic pop, basic swing

styles.

Mandolin — fiddle tunes for mandolin; bluegrass style mandolin — note for note, tremolo styles, Bill Monroe style.

Upright bass — basic bass technique and advanced bluegrass style bass

My teaching environment (I teach in my home studio in central Little Rock — pictured above) is warm, pleasant and,

most of all, positive. It's also family-friendly, with a big couch for mom or dad to relax on and toys to help little brother or

sister pass the time. Don't mind the pups, they're just saying "hello."

I won't constantly hound you about practicing your instrument; however, I will expect improvement over time until a level of

proficiency is reached that works for both of us. My long-term goal is for you to be at a level where you can play with others,

and share your music with all those who would enjoy listening to you..

Practicing isn't always fun, especially when you're just starting out and there are fingers to toughen and muscles to

strengthen. The goal is to progress, over time, away from "practicing" the instrument to "playing" the instrument. If it's play,

you'll never get enough of it. There will always be self-discipline involved, but it becomes much more of a joy as your skill

develops. And the rate of development varies greatly from person to person. It can be difficult to be patient with yourself, but

I've found that part of my job is to encourage you to keep pressing forward. I have yet to find a student who was genuinely

interested in progressing, but simply couldn't, because they were too uncoordinated or "tone-deaf." If you hang in there and

do what your teacher says, I believe you will move forward. Everyone progresses at different speeds, because everyone is

different.
