How can I help you? 

Would you like to work on techniques such as legato, alternate picking, etc.?

Dig deeper into a particular style of music.

Learn how to improvise.

Explore music theory.

Build up your song repertoire.

Write your own music.

Shoot me a message and let's talk about your goals

If you've ever wondered how you can not only learn songs on your own but also create your own music, then you're going to freak over the tools and techniques that you'll learn with me!  From learning your first chords and scales to music theory and everything in between, I'm ready to give you the tools to succeed

My journey began in my early teens, and I'm still playing in bands and performing live on a regular basis.  Being a student of the instrument is something that I strongly believe in, and I really enjoy passing along my knowledge of Rock, Pop, Rockabilly, Metal, Blues, and Country in a way that is easy to understand. I have earned certificates with the Berklee College of Music Online (Professional Rock Guitar 2012) and The Atlanta Institute of Music and Media (Music & Technology 2023). 

Suited to the needs of the student.  Theory, technique, songs or a combination thereof.

Pentatonic Exploration - Let's Break Out of the Box!

Brad is a great teacher and helped a beginner like me think and play outside the box and be creative (which was a good reminder why I picked up the guitar in the first place!). He is down to earth, willing to explain beginner concepts and every so often throws out a few pearls of wisdom which are really relevant. He's clearly a virtuoso, but can also relate to us newbies which makes me feel comfortable playing with him.

Another fun class by Brad! He makes it light but also has lots of great material that aren't just exercises , they are fun riffs too that can help make you feel pretty darned bad-ass while building skills!
