About Me

I started to fall in love with music when I saw the Beatles Anthology on TV; got my first guitar when I was 15 and have been hooked ever since. I started playing in Rock Bands in high school and started teaching lessons my senior year of high school in Dale City Virginia; then I got real serious about music and decided to go to Music School.

I received my Bachelor Degree in Music Performance from VCU in 2006 and have been teaching lessons in the Richmond area ever since. I play many instruments around Richmond and Central Virginia, and you can most notably see me playing mandolin with bands such as, The River City Band and A Good Natured Riot.

I teach every style that a student is willing to learn, everything from Italian Opera to Hip-hop funk. If a student is passionate about a certain area of music then I will help them to further there knowledge on that particular style. I teach students from age 5-100 and have also taught many students with special needs. I love listening to, playing, and teaching others about music. Music is something that once it gets inside of you, it is hard to get out; it becomes a part of you, so hopefully we can make you love and appreciate music as much as I do. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson style is patient and laid back, but I am a fan of hard work and details. I believe the harder you work, the more you will be rewarded; but work can be fun, especially when it comes to music. I first try to find out what music the student is passionate about and go from there; once we have found out what the student is interested in we expand on that more, but always paying attention to the fundamentals of music. A student can learn about music theory in a Taylor Swift song just as much as they can from a Mozart song.

I like to work out of Hal Leonard, Mel Bay and Alfred Music Books, but I use a lot of personal notes and songs from previous teachers of mine. If a student is interested in performing I try to have them play out in public either at a show or a recital of mine. After a couple of months of lessons students should be able to have a greater appreciation of music and music styles while being able to read music and play some songs/tunes. Hopefully we will be playing music together in the future, thank you for your time

I teach students on an individual level according to what they want to accomplish. Each lesson is custom tailored to fit their objective. Mastering the instrument and understanding music theory are two important subjects that I offer. Along with that, a student can focus on any musical style from classical to jazz plus other important aspects like composing, reading and recording music.

I am willing to share my professional experience with any student who wants to become a player!
