2200LII teach private music lessons and small group lessons at my house in the Jefferson Heights neighborhood in Chattanooga, TN for ages 8 and up. Lesson rates are $40/hour.   Call me if you’d like to schedule a guitar, ukulele, dulcimer, or piano lesson: 423-779-6581. I do house calls too!

I teach large group classes/workshops in everyday community settings and at festivals. You can also inquire about a family music lesson if you and your kids would like to get into some music together.

As my student, you can expect to learn music theory, ear training, reading and writing standard Western music notation, and some practical repertoire that will help connect you to other players.  My students also do some “world exploring” at their lessons, as we learn repertoire from many different musical cultures, and even get opportunities once in a while to study with musicians visiting from other countries.
