Live music options
Here is a description of some of the more common groups I work with in a live setting. If you are looking for something specific this might serve as a guideline to help you choose the style and group appropriate for your event.
Jazz guitar Solo - I can perform solo jazz guitar. I have up to 3 hours of solo guitar available. Mostly this repertoire is composed of Jazz ballads, and blues which work well for “light," entertainment, and or a more intimate setting.
Duos, Trios, Quartets - I can arrange any combination of guitar and ; bass, saxophone, trombones, trumpet, violin, another guitar or piano, vocals , drums and percussion. If you are expecting dancing, and the band to be more of a main act, I would recommend having a drummer additionally. My main repertoire consists of jazz standards, ballads, blues, and contemporary music. I am mostly used for events, dinner music, weddings/cocktail hours, live entertainment, festivals, and light entertainment for any kind of function.
Cafe Nouveau - is a string based trio set in the spirit of Gypsy Jazz. The repertoire consists of gypsy standards, and popular standards from the earlier years of Jazz.

The “try it” lesson is an introductory rate of $20 for the first 2 lessons, and this is for younger people who may or may not want to give it a try. With the package* lessons I give you a punch card to keep, and I initial and date each lesson as we have them.
Most students I set up a time to go to their house, or they come to me. If you have Skype, scheduling is much easier.
I am currently working on a guitar lesson book for students, and will have a pdf available very soon. I have many activities, and handouts that teach insight, theory, composition, improvisation skills, and reading. Some students just want to learn songs and have fun, and others want to learn it all. I focus on teaching the instrument and try to make it fun, and useful for enhancing your abilities further.
