Rates / Policies

Thanks for trusting me with your journey as a guitarist: I am committed to helping each and every student progress and grow as a musician, define and achieve their goals, and find satisfaction and joy in playing music!


I offer one hour lessons for $50 for one hour, or $30 for $30 minutes. Tuesday – Friday I teach at The Music Barn at 920 South Chapman Street in Greensboro. Lessons can be scheduled any time during their normal business hours, 11 am to 6 pm. For adults I recommend 1 hour lessons, for kids 13 and under I recommend 30 minute lessons.

For all lessons at the Music Barn I’ll ask for each month’s fee at the first lesson of the month. See my cancellation policy below, and please note for months paid in advance students can cancel 1 lesson only (with 24 hrs notice) for a refund; all other cancellations must be rescheduled within that month.

Students wishing to book lessons on Sundays or weeknights after 6 can take lessons at the same rates/ policies at my comfortable home studio in Lindley park.

Lessons at your home start at around $65 for one hour and vary based on location. In home half-hour lessons for younger musicians start at $45.

I require a $25 deposit for all new lessons. Lessons will not be scheduled without a deposit! I accept payment through all major online platforms (PayPal, Square, Venmo, Zelle), please contact me to make a deposit. The deposit will be refunded only if, after taking one lesson, the student opts not to continue lessons with me / decides I am not the teacher for them, etc. The deposit counts towards the cost of the first lesson. The deposit will not be refunded in the event of a no-show, or cancellation with less than 48 hours notice prior to the first lesson. First/ trial lessons may be rescheduled within a two-week window.


I charge full rate, or $45, whichever is lower, for lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. Lessons may be rescheduled within a 1 week window.

Frequent cancellations, with or without notice, will result in discontinuation of lessons/ loss of time slot: For obvious reasons I cannot reserve or block off time for students who frequently cancel. (‘Frequently’ means too often, as defined by me.) For students who cannot make a regular time, I am happy to schedule ad hoc or infrequent lessons, at non-peak times (i.e. not during week nights).


Students who refer new students to me (minimum 2 lessons) receive a lesson free!
