Why I work well with kids?
I have extensive experience working with music students of all ages. I try to be non-intimidating while communicating my passion for music to get my students excited about learning. With kids, showing them what they could be playing in a matter of weeks gets them motivated, and a cycle of positive reinforcement gets them there!

If you are just getting started with your private in home music lessons, here are some important tips for your new guitar.
Cleaning Your New Guitar
It is a good idea to keep your guitar looking good by using guitar polish, not furniture or silicone polish. Be sure not to get the polish on the bridge. You should also wipe down the guitar strings after each use, as this habit will lengthen the life of your strings. Be sure to use a soft cloth. Paper towels are probably too rough and could actually scratch the finish. Flannel ‘guitar polishing cloths’ are available at stores in case you want to play it really safe.
Humidity and Acoustic Guitars
The single biggest danger to your acoustic guitar is dry air. This applies to all wood instruments, including upright basses, cellos, violins and violas. Forced heat in your home is extremely dangerous to your instruments as the air causes the wood to shrink which in turn can lead to cracking. You can avoid this possibility by using humidifiers. An essential investment to the maintenance of your guitars!
Storage For Guitars
Avoid leaving your guitar in the car or the trunk of your car for prolonged periods if the temperature is hot or cold. Both extremes can produce negative effects on your instrument. Also, hot air from your home heating system is dangerous. Don’t leave your guitar near heat sources for this reason. If you are using ‘dampits’ to help humidify your instrument, be sure to keep the instrument in it’s case when not in use.
Upon purchase of a used electric guitar, it is a great idea to give it a thorough cleaning. This will help it look, feel and sound better. It also gives you a chance to learn more about the inner workings of your instrument. If you are mechanically challenged, it might be a good idea to stick with the basics of guitar cleaning. If you are up for more of a challenge, read on. You can always check with your private B&B Music Lessons guitar teacher before attempting the following cleaning methods.
The tools required will be:
‘Fantastic’ surface cleaner
Wood cleaner (Scott’s Liquid Gold works fine)
Now, you can disassemble the guitar. First you need to remove the strings. After the strings are removed, take the neck off (the screws are on the back of the instrument). Next, remove the springs from the bridge and then the bridge itself is pulled out and set aside.
The pickups should be applied to the top of the pickups so that there is no scratching during the cleaning process. Now unscrew the pickup rings from the body of the guitar and set the pickups aside, tape side down. Wipe clean the pickup rings so that they are clear of dust, etc. After they are clean, you can reattach them to the pickups. Now remove the masking tape and wipe clean the top of the pickups.
Now we move to the body of the guitar. Spray the cleaner onto the paper towel, never directly onto the instrument. Give the guitar a good cleaning and this might require a bit of ‘elbow grease’, depending on the condition of the instrument. After this preliminary cleaning, you can use newspaper to give it a second rub down which should leave a nice shine to the guitar.
The tremolo is a bit more intricate and requires more care and attention to detail. There are several small pieces. Remove each spring and saddle then clean and polish each piece. You can also take some WD 40 and wipe down each screw thread to keep the intonation screws from squeaking. This attention to the trem will take some time but will make it look brand new.
Now you can clean the tuning machines. Give them each a quick polish with a paper towel and cleaner. They will look much better if you’re working with a well used guitar. Now clean the neck with paper towels and some wood cleaner. Pay special attention to the fretboard close to the frets themselves. This might where the most accumulation of dirt is encountered. More elbow grease might be required but again this is worth the time and effort involved.
Lastly, take a minute to clean your guitar case. Any loose material bouncing around in there could easily ding up your guitar. Keeping a cloth in the case to minimize the movement of your guitar is a good idea. You can use the same cloth to wipe your fretboard down after playing your instrument. This will make a big difference in the long haul!
