About Me

Born in Rapid City, South Dakota, I started taking piano lessons at the age of 6. Since that time, my love for music has grown with each passing day.

I graduated from The Entertainment Career Connection in 2010 with a certification in Audio Engineering and Production. There I studied audio mixing, recording, production and mastering. I currently study music education at Denver Metropolitan University.

I am very active in the community volunteering my time as the Event Coordinator and Board of Directors for a non-profit organization called The Denver Creative Movement. In addition, I keep myself busy musically playing in my bands, Sleeping Giants, L.A.M.A. LIVE (Little Ambition Makes A lot), and The Free Electric Band.

I continue to follow my life-long passion for music by educating others. I believe that music lessons should be a fun and rewarding experience, and place a high value on learning how to use music in everyday life.

Acting, Broadway Singing, Dance, Drum, Mandolin, Music Theory, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University.
I have studied many types of music and education.

My favorite singing styles include: musical theatre, commercial, and opera.

Instrumental techniques are vastly arranged by what the student's goals are.
I love teaching a variety of styles. I believe in a diverse repertoire.

I plan on getting my Master's Degree in Performance and Choreography from CU Boulder.

*** Lesson Details ***
I start out with the parts/anatomy of the instrument. Once there is a fair understanding of the equipment being used the student can gradually respect and confide in the instrument.

I am 100% for the sake of efficiency. A performer's "Use" is all about how the musician utilizes the primary control. Proper technique is crucial to ensure the longevity of a musical career/endeavor

Every student in the world has a different learning style. Visual, auditory, kinesthetic, or some combination of all of them is taken into consideration with every, single circumstance.

The opportunity to expand the mind and body to music is certainly a wonderful, yet individual experience.
