Welcome to Live Music Tutor! I teach a few topics here pertaining to guitar. These topics include individual lessons from beginning children to intermediate players, improvisation, theory, composition and history.I graduated from Utah State University with my Bachelor's of Music with an emphasis in Guitar Performance. I studied with Michael Christiansen, who amongst many other accolades, was selected as a U.S. Carnegie Professor of the Year, as well as the USU Caine College of the Arts Professor of the Year, both in 2012.I studied from the ground up and am confident that my skills and education can help anyone build a strong foundation on the above listed topics.My goal as a teacher is to teach my students core musical concepts, develop good practice habits, know where to find reliable sound and literary resources and ultimately be self-sufficient.I currently play in two bands, as well as solo gigs.Some examples of my playing can be found
