I started playing guitar when I was nine and it has been my best friend ever since. Recently I have been focused on performing, writing and recording a wide range of styles/genres. Currently I am working on several projects including a Tim McGraw tribute band called Allen as Tim , a jazz trio, and solo fingerstyle which you can hear on my website.
As much as I love playing the guitar and making music I also get great joy in showing others to do the same. I have dedicated my life my instrument. Along the way there have been many struggles to get to the next level. My teaching style has always been to teach my students what they want to know while working in what they need to know all as fast, efficient and enjoyable as possible. You can find me teaching at Gus Zoppi Music Center in Sterling heights most week days. I am also available for lessons on the web via GOOGLE HANGOUT, SKYPE, FACETIME or from my home in Ferndale, MI.
