My musical career started in 6th grade, which was around 2001. That year I started playing guitar and trombone. My main interest was in the guitar so I started taking lessons since the first time I picked up it up. Through out high school I played guitar in the jazz band and trombone in the symphonic and marching bands. I also played guitar in the 2006 New Years day parade in London. I was with the marching band and was a featured soloist during the parade.
I was eventually accepted into Berklee College of Music and began attending during the fall of 2008. At Berklee I have performed with many different independent groups at medium sized venues. In addition, I have performed with a series of ensembles, and performance labs here at Berklee. I am still currently attending the college where I am finishing a degree in professional music. The main focus area of my major is music education. Through out my Berklee career I have been teaching privately with a wide range of students. Over those years I really grew to enjoy teaching and learned quite a bit.
I truly believe in what I am teaching, music is a gift that everyone should have. I literally gain satisfaction from teaching and sharing music with people. I remember that feeling when I was first getting started with a universe of musical possibilities. What I try to do is get the student aware of that and able to tap into it. I chose my major at Berklee because I know music education is something I believe in.

I am one of those individuals for whom teaching is just something that I have to do. I started giving music lessons sometime in the 80’s and have loved working with all levels of skill and experience. My students say that I am patient, adaptive and encouraging, committed to making music fun.
I have a Masters of Music from New England Conservatory in Jazz Piano and am comfortable and fluent in a number of musical styles, including pop, rock, gospel, traditional hymnody, jazz, and R&B. Although I love and study classical music, it is not something I teach at this point.
In addition to private lessons and performing, I do music transcription, workshops, and all forms of vocal and instrumental arranging. Having served as a church musician for more than 30 years, I currently co-lead the worship team at Life Church in Boston with my wife. I recently signed on as the keyboard player for Tall Enough, a Boston-based alternative rock band. I often find myself involved in city-wide music events in Boston’s faith-based community, most recently arranging music and directing a 60-voice choir for Boston Night of Worship.
I enjoy my morning coffee, finding new guitar chords, creating killer PowerPoint presentations, and watching how fast my teenage daughter can text her friends.
Guitar, Piano, Music Theory
I grew up in a musical home and have been playing piano since the age of four. I have had all sorts of different music teachers in my life and I have always looked to them for inspiration for my own teaching--what would I do differently? What would I do the same?
In my opinion, a teacher is an extremely energetic, charged individual who is entirely focused on the progress of the student. A teacher is inspiring, motivating, and makes learning a fun and enjoyable experience. I strive for this level of excellence in each of my lessons. It is extremely important to me that my students learn at their own pace, while mastering techniques and building a strong foundation.
I teach both piano and guitar, and I am excited to start you off on your musical journey!
I was classically trained on the piano from the age of four. When I was twelve, I decided to expand my musical horizons and pick up the guitar. During high school, I became very serious about my musical studies. I attended 6-week summer workshops at the National Guitar Workshop for guitar and music theory lessons. I also began attending a magnet school program called the Regional Center for the Arts, which I did every day after my normal school day. In 2007, I began my studies at Berklee College of Music and graduated in 2011 as a Bachelor of Music with a degree in Film Scoring.
I have about five years of teaching experience. While I was still in high school, I was giving private piano and guitar lessons on the weekends. I also helped tutor my fellow students at the Regional Center for the Arts. This is when I discovered I loved teaching. During my time at Berklee, I participated in a work/study program at the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester. I taught private piano and guitar lessons here, as well as group piano lessons. I also participated in a program called KidsJam, which gave me experience working with very little children (ages 3-5).
