If you've been looking for a place to take guitar lessons then you've arrived at the right place. Guitar lessons from me are only $30.00 an hour. Lessons are given every monday in the Student Center Building room 350.9 located on the campus of Wayne State University. Please keep in mind that guitar lessons are to be made in advance so you must make an appointment a week ahead of time.
I teach progressive Rock and Jazz Fusion. I have an Associates Degree in Music from Henry Ford Community Collage, where I studied Jazz and Classical guitar with John Hall and Jazz improvisation with legendary jazz great Ed Nucelli. I'm currently pursuing a degree in Classical Guitar Performance at Wayne State University.
My musical influences are Vinnie Moore, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Jimi Hendrix,Yngwie Malmsteen, Wes Mountgomery, Richie Blackmore, Al Di Meola, Joe Satriani, Paco De Lucia, and Eddie Hazel.

Over the years I've studied with some of Michigan's best Jazz & Classical Guitar Players. They include Lee Dyament (WSU), Brian Roberts (WSU) John Hall (HFCC) Michael Bryce (UMD) Steve Carrier (WSU). I have also given concerts at the Southfield Public Library and The Under Graduate Library at Wayne State University. I often perform when there is a meeting of the Classical Guitar Society of Michigan on the 3rd tuesday of every month.
For those of you who are in the Lincoln Park area I teach guitar at A&R music on mondays from 4:30 to 7:30. If you're interested in taking guitar lessons you can e-mail me (Todd Richardson) or schedule a lesson at the store. Lessons are cheaper if you take them through A&R. If this is a better option you can contact the store and ask about there prices by e-mailing them or calling them at the number listed below.
