"With time and patience you can accomplish anything. I've been a faculty member since 1984, and I wanted to attend Berklee as a student since I was 11 years old. Teaching at Berklee is a blast! It is easy for me to share what I love about guitar and music all day. I am an artist in residence and the Guitar Department’s Beatles expert, professor Beatle; some Beatles fans call me George. I created the Beatles Ensemble for full band in the Ensemble Department and the Beatles Guitar Lab for the Guitar Department. I teach guitar, songwriting, home recording, artist survival skills, and creativity within my guitar lessons and guitar classes."
"Fear can wreak havoc on the creative soul. Many students worry that the magic will go away or they will lose their natural creativity if they study an art like music. It is tricky to not lose yourself in this world, period. Staying true to your own desires takes courage and stamina and all the love you can give yourself. I like to find what inspired my students to come to Berklee, where they want to go with their playing and musicianship, and how I can help them make choices to reach their musical goals with a sense of humor while staying healthy and sane."
