Nazareth Guitar Institute

 Where Your Guitar Building Dreams Become a Reality   

     I always enjoy teaching and sharing the skills I have acquired in my 33 years of guitar-building experience. In 1996, I began teaching the art of Lutherie at colleges and workshops. In the years following, I opened Nazareth Guitar Institute, a fully equipped studio and workshop located in historic Nazareth, Pennsylvania. Hundreds of students, young and old, some with experience some with none, have attended the school over the years. We offer group workshops or my one-on-one Custom Guitar Dream Class. Come and enjoy with us the passion we have for music and the art of guitar-building. If you can dream it, you can come a build it. We guide you through step by step to ensure your guitar is a master piece!
