Musical Lessons

Guitar Lessons

Want guitar or mandolin lessons in Ottawa? I teach bellydance but I’m also a professional music teacher. I’ve played the guitar for over 30 years and for 13 years worked full time as a touring musician. I just moved here and have lots of openings for students in my home studio just east of downtown Ottawa. Adults and kids (age 7 and older), acoustic or electric, many styles. I make music fun – if it’s not, why bother?
