Hello patrons,

I am a guitarist living and teaching in San Francisco.  My first main teachers were Jon Mendle and Mark Simons of the San Francisco Guitar Quartet and I've studied with Larry Ferrara at San Francisco State University.  I've studied jazz guitar with Matt Warnock.  I compose as well, and have recently begun taking private composition lessons with composer Michael Gilbertson of the SF Conservatory of Music.  I feel truly blessed to live in such a great city and be able to study with wonderful, caring, and generous teachers and mentors.  I don't expect this Patreon to take off in any way, it's mainly just a curiosity for me.  Perhaps someone will stumble upon this page and seem intrigued, and want lessons or something.  But being relegated to obscurity amongst the many Patreon artists who create amazing content, I'm okay with that.  I'm a pretty chill dude.  I will be creating videos of my guitar playing and posting recordings of my compositions.  I am available for lessons - over Skype, or if you're in SF you can PM me and we can arrange in-person lessons.  Also, for some reason for the Audition Consultation, Arrangement and Character Piece Commission pages are showing the pricing to be a monthly payment.  For these particular tiers please note it is a one-time fee and not a monthly fee.  Thanks for all your support.
Tiers
30 Minute Audition Consultation
$1 or more per month

If you are a middle-schooler attempting to get into a performing arts high school I offer a free one-time 30 minute consultation over Skype at this tier to give you some coaching for your audition.  PM me and don't join the tier, unless you would like to use it as a donation.

Free Trial Lesson
$1 or more per month

Ignore the $1 price.  Don't join this tier, just PM me if you want a free trial lesson, no strings attached.  This might seem generous, but I am learning from my students as well, so it's a reciprocal thing whether or not I get paid.

Music video appreciation
$10 or more per month

If you appreciate my music videos, you can still view them for free but I'd appreciate it if you could pay at this tier so I can continue producing content.

Fretboard Harmony
$30 or more per month

At this tier we'll meet once a month in person if you're in SF and over Skype if you're elsewhere and I'll teach you about fretboard harmony.  I haven't quite developed a complete system yet, but I've been through Jeffrey McFadden's Fretboard Harmony a few times and worked with other fretboard harmony books as well.  My approach to fretboard harmony is a bit like Ted Greene-lite.  Depending on your skill level, we can also work on Van-Eps Harmonic Mechanisms-style vocal movement within triads.  Note, I will not be using copies of materials out of these books, because you should get 'em to support the artists and publishers who have put much effort into creating them.  I will be using materials that I've created that have been influenced by the above mentioned books.

Weekly Skype Lessons
$150 or more per month

At this tier we can do once-a-week hourly Skype lessons after we set a time.  If you're in SF PM me so we can set up lessons in person(but we can also do Skype if that's what you prefer.  Skype will also be more affordable and you and I won't have to travel).

Arrangement Commission
$150 or more per month

At this tier I will arrange a song you like and will send you a recording and the sheet music.

Character Piece Commission
$200 or more per month

With this one-time fee of $200 I will write a character piece dedicated to you or to someone you would like to have dedicated to.  I will send you a recording and the sheet music.
See my video of Anna's Waltz to get an idea of what I mean by character piece.

Guitar sonata commission
$500 or more per month

I’ve written one guitar sonata.  There’s some cool stuff and counterpoint but it is a bit rhythmically monotonous.  I’m just adding this tier just in case someone wants to challenge me to write another guitar sonata(one guitar piece in sonata form rather than a multi-movement sonata).  Maybe I should add another tier for a complete sonata commission?  Nah.
