I am a fun and energetic multi-instrumentalist who loves to play and explore music of all kinds. I have been playing drums and percussion for 12 years, guitar for 9 years, and bass guitar for 6 years. Music is a source of enjoyment and an avenue for creative expression, and this is what I keep in mind as a teacher.
I believe the best way to teach anything is to focus on the individual student's need. I have no single way to teach, and I cater lessons to students' individual needs and wants.
I am very committed to providing a high quality musical experience for you; I am very flexible and willing to accommodate difficult schedules and special requests.
