About Me

I am a Florida native, active graduate student, teacher and practitioner. My career is to perform and record regularly as a guitarist and teach in upper-level academia. My grade school academic strengths were always in math so this reflects my enthusiasm for the subject. The math equivalent in music is music theory, which is another passion of mine. I hope to take these rounded characteristics to teach and influence others with what I have learned in my education and career thus far.

*** Lesson Details ***
While taking lessons:
I ensure that every student has firm fundamental foundation pertaining to the subject. Knowing that the basics are covered, I advise the student on organizing their materials along with their time. While using the tools given to us as teachers and students, we can treat the heart of a topic with refinement to fully grasp the purpose and reason---to ultimately find the life that lies deep within...whether its math or music.

My students have grown with confidence through their sense of accomplishment. These outcomes not only affect their art but also all other dimensions of their lives.

About Me

I am a graduate of Stetson University and, more recently, a Graduate Assistant at The University of Akron. Also, I regularly perform in professional groups across a broad spectrum of genres.

Another passion of mine is digital arts, in which I minored during college. With experience in Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton Live, and Max/MSP (sound design and music programming). I am well versed in these areas.

I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, where I began playing music around the age of 11. I was selected to attend LaVilla School of the Arts in 6th grade, where I began playing various low brass instruments and playing in the school's symphonic band. I decided around the age of 13 that I wanted to begin playing guitar and soon found myself in the classical guitar program at LaVilla, along with still playing in the symphonic band and making All-State band later that year.

When it came to the decision of where I would attend high school, I wanted to attend Douglas Anderson School of the Arts so that I could continue my pursuit in music as a career. I continued to refine my skills as a player and began focusing, mostly, on guitar. I also found out about Digital Arts and the ability to use a computers and electronics to compose and record music. I have always loved to write my own music and found this to be a great creative outlet.

After graduating high school, I was able to attend Stetson University on a music scholarship to continue my studies. I played guitar under Dr. Stephen Robinson and studied Digital Arts under Dr. Nathan Wolek, graduating from Stetson in May of 2011.

I have also performed and recorded in various groups around central Florida, including Run Rhino, LLC, Strings Attached, various classical guitar quartets, and my own solo recitals. I have played with artists such as Slow Ride and Starship (Jefferson Starship) and I have recorded in studios all over the south east region.

Recently, I began working on my Master's of Music degree. I am studying under the tutelage of Stephen Aron (Oberlin, The University of Akron) at The University of Akron.

Some of my influences include:
Manuel Barrueco, John Williams, Charles Ives, Edward Elgar, Jeff Buckley, Bjork, Justice, DeadMou5, Johann Sebastian Bach, Domenico Scarlatti, Stephen Robinson, Led Zeppelin, Ana Vidovic, Hans Zimmer, Clint Mansell, and so on.

*** Lesson Details ***
The first step will be evaluating the student's musical and technical skill level, then I build a curriculum from that point. As an example, a beginning student would learn how to read music, play basic rhythms, use proper left and right hand technique, and the notes in the first position on individual strings. After I have evaluated the current level of the student and their musical interest, I will begin to move my curriculum around their various needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will have a music stand for you to use at your lesson; I require the student to have their own instrument so that they may practice outside of their lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music Stand

*** Specialties ***
Classical - Pop - Jazz - Songwriting - Digital Arts - Recording - Music Production - Theory - General Music
