Hello! I'm Larree. I’ve been playing guitar for 60 years and I would love to share my knowledge with you. I can teach you music theory and songwriting, too. I make learning the guitar fun and encourage creativity and originality. You don’t have to become a master on the guitar before you have fun; you can have fun playing as you work towards your own personal concept of mastery.  

I have a casual, fun approach to teaching guitar. I teach you how to teach yourself. I enjoy working with beginners of all ages. Don't listen to anyone who says you can't become a good guitar player if you begin later in life. You can surely get good enough to have a lot of fun at any age. Playing music is wonderful for meditation, personal introspection, and inner healing. And it's a great way to keep your mind active. So don't allow your age to stop you from starting. 

I began playing with guitars when guitars were taller than me and started taking beginner guitar lessons when I was seven years old. I learned to read music early, and was soon singing and accompanying myself. When I hit my teens I was playing in cover bands and started my first original band when I was in high school. I had (and still have) many great teachers. I completed the Contemporary Arranging Program at the Dick Grove Music Workshops, the Howard Roberts Guitar Seminars, and many other music classes and performance workshops. But really, my main credential is my love for the guitar and everything musical. So let's get started.

I have a large library of guitar methods and theory books, both physical and digital. We will find the methods that resonate with you. I can teach you hand exercises I have been doing most of my guitar-playing life that can help keep your hands strong and flexible. These exercises are excellent for beginners and for seasoned players who might get a little stiff. I can also help you with songwriting. I can help you fully understand song structure; rhythm patterns, hooks, melodies, and lyrics. You can come to me if you are an actor looking to add guitar playing to your skills list so you can audition for more roles.
