I've played all sorts of music on both acoustic and electric guitar- blues, country, folk, jazz, latin, classical, etc.  I've taught both complete beginners and more advanced students.  Since everyone learns differently, I generally like to customize my teaching for the student, rather than use a single method for everyone.  I'm located in SE Portland (not too far from Reed College) and charge $50 for an hour lesson. If transportation is an issue, I can come to your place, although I generally charge a little bit more depending on the distance.  Please email me on my CONTACT page if you have any more questions or if you'd like to set up a lesson.
