1. 12, hour-long lessons ($800 paid up front at the start of the semester).
2. 12, half hour lessons ($400 paid up front at the start of the semester).

Please contact me if you have any questions about guitar lessons at Emory

I also maintain private studios in Lawrenceville and Decatur, GA. Contact me if interested in private study.


TEACHING GOAL:
To instill in my students a commitment to personal excellence and a life long love for musical and artistic growth.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
My role is to teach students how to overcome their technical and musical obstacles. Students may do this by developing metacognition and a locus of internal control in relation to learning music and playing the guitar.
