Welcome to Axes of E'ville!

I specialize in teaching guitar to beginners.

If you've never picked up a guitar before but you've always dreamed of playing, if you have absolutely no idea how to get started, or If you've been trying to learn how to play on your own and you're starting to feel like maybe this is something you just can't do, I want to work with you.

I teach experienced players too.

If you've been stuck at your current skill level for way too long, if there are things you keep hearing in other people's songs that you can't figure out how to do with yours, or if you just want to feel excited about your playing again, I want to work with you, too.

Playing guitar is the best.

All you'll ever need, once you know what you're doing, are your hands, your ears, and a guitar. It doesn't even have to be a good guitar. There's a great song waiting inside almost every stick of wood that's been blessed with strings.

Have a look around!

Learn a bit about my method, discover what sort of support I offer outside of class, and find answers to all of your questions. I've worked hard to make Axes of E'ville the best possible source for information, inspiration, and education for new and aspiring Bay Area guitarists. If you like what you see and you think we might be a good fit, then I hope you'll consider booking a lesson with me.
