I knew I wanted to be a professional guitar player from the first time I picked up an electric guitar over 14 years ago. I started taking private lessons as soon as I got my first guitar, and without the crucial guidance and encouragement I received early on I certainly would not be the guitarist I am today, and that old guitar might even be collecting dust in a closet somewhere. Since I began teaching 8 years ago my goal has been to provide that same encouragement to beginning students and to help them realize that no matter what their ambitions are, they can be achieved with enough practice and they can have fun along the way!
When I started high school I realized there was a lot more to playing guitar than the hard rock and blues songs I had been learning up until then, so I enrolled in a music theory class, joined my school's jazz band and began taking classical guitar lessons at the University of Wyoming. After high school I accepted academic and music scholarships to attend the University of Oregon where I majored in Jazz Studies, and I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Music degree with an emphasis on jazz arranging. While at UO I performed in student combos and my own rock band Just People as well as the award winning Oregon Jazz Ensemble. I also had the opportunity to perform with the Eugene Symphony Orchestra and play several shows with Grammy-Award winning country artist Lynn Anderson.
This diverse experience allows me to help my students improve their technique and gain a deeper understanding of the guitar, regardless of the style(s) of music they are passionate about. I firmly believe that anyone can learn to play guitar and that lessons should be fun, whether your goal is to be able to sing your favorite song and strum a few chords or start your own band and take over the world!

I have been a guitar and voice instructor for over 15 years. I really love this job! I had a real hard time learning guitar when I was growing up because of an accident to my left arm, but I wanted to play so much that I was able to overcome it. Because of this I think I have learned to be a very patient teacher. I see students who get frustrated and think that it's too hard to play the guitar, but I promise you my program is fun and simple.I can show you the steps to success. I have taught over 500 students in a variety of cities from Minneapolis Minnesota, to Los Angeles California, and now Portland Oregon. I am currently obtaining my Masters in Music education and spiritual psychology from Marylhurst, and I have taught every age from 5-65. I am also a performer, and I own my own music publishing company through ASCAP (American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers). I also currently teach Piano to level 2, so if you are a beginner, you will love my new program. Music is my life, I can help you make your dream of playing guitar or singing come true. You can do it!

After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in music, I moved to New York where I lived for 11 years.

I have been playing professionally since I was 22 years old with various string instruments. With a few different bands I have played guitar, electric bass, upright bass, bass banjo, and other instruments across the U.S., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
I love teaching one-on-one and helping students expand their musical horizons.
I'm comfortable with very many styles, and tailor my lessons to the students needs.
What kind of music or playing style are they passionate about?
That is what is important.
You should take lessons with me because there are very few people who do what I do (and not charge you an arm and a leg for lessons), and almost no one else who does what I do with my bass banjo. I really want to show people the style I have developed, and help them find their own.

I have a B.M. from Berklee College of Music with an emphasis in Folk, Bluegrass, and traditional music but can teach any style.
Would you like to have a better ear? Be able to hear chord changes quicker and translate that to your instrument? Or would you like to have a better grasp on theory and how to translate that knowledge onto your instrument?
While attending Berklee, I taught all music theory subjects (jazz and traditional harmony), ear training, counterpoint, and songwriting through the school and was involved in the tutoring department.
Are you looking to develop your songwriting? Would you like to write better lyrics? Or use a deeper theoretical knowledge to find new writing techniques and your unique voice?
While living in Boston, I received accolades and awards for songwriting from Berklee and the Boston music community and can pass along harmonic and lyrical techniques to allow you to become a better writer.
Whether you are new to music or a longtime musician looking for something new, I can provide material and methods to help you meet your goals and advance your musicianship.
I am fluent in Guitar and pedal steel guitar and have taught beginning to advanced students in all age groups.
If you want to expand your knowledge of music theory, improve your ear for hearing changes and complex chords, learn new songwriting techniques, and get to new places on your instrument get in touch!
