Welcome to KJguitar.comGuitar lessons. Guitar performance.
I am a professional guitarist and instructor. I hope you find something useful here on my site. Periodically, I will post a new instructional video here, or add some music notation. Check back from time to time and you may find something really helpful.
I am available for performances such as weddings, background music, parties, etc. In addition to solo classical guitar, I can offer duet performances with either flute or oboe. My performance availablity includes all of the Denver metro, Boulder, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and other nearby cities.
Most of all, I enjoy teaching. If you're looking for a guitar instructor, give me a try. I'm experienced, knowledgable, friendly, and patient. I adapt lessons to suit the individual student while maintaining a core of music theory and solid technique training. I take beginners and advanced players alike, I teach all styles, and am equally thrilled to teach a very serious student or a hobbiest who just wants a fun weekly lesson to help them unwind from a long work week.
