As of November 19, 2014 – I’m now accepting new students! I’ve got an inkling that there will be some guitars, ukuleles, and electric basses unwrapped from shiny paper in these next few months… why not get enrolled in lessons right now?

I’ve been teaching for 15 years, and I teach performance of many fretted, stringed instruments – my main deal is guitar, since I’m classically trained at that, and I blend classical technique and study with contemporary folk music. The full list includes:

guitar (classical and steel-stringed) (electric guitar – beginners only)
lap dulcimer
electric bass
beginning banjo
beginning mandolin
songwriting! (and I can blend that with any instrument)

I train well-rounded musicians, which means that we will incorporate music theory, ear training, written critique of performances on YouTube, and more.


Length: 30 minutes or 60 minutes.
Location: My studio is west of downtown Newark, DE.
Rate: I focus on developing rapport with her students, so the first half-hour lesson is free. After that, students commit and pay on a month-to-month basis. Contact me for a quote!
Skype: If your home internet can handle a 30-minute video call with superb quality, I’m willing to attempt teaching via Skype.
