Austin, TX, 78749
Subjects Taught Guitar, Classical Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory
I began playing guitar at the age of eight when I found an old nylon string that my older brother had left when he went to college. Although I couldn't take lessons because we didn't have a guitar teacher in the small New Mexico town I grew up in, I began playing the thing incessantly-particularly while watching TV. By the time I had learned how to play the theme to “The Newlywed Game” on the guitar, my mother relented and found a local accordion teacher who would give me music lessons. By the time I was in middle school I was playing gigs with a local Country and Western dance band.
After high school, I moved to Austin, TX. Those years leading up to my return to college were filled with lots of music, not much money, and the invaluable education in music that only Austin, TX can give. In 2006 I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Theory and Composition at the University of New Mexico, and was embarking on a new path in my career.
And then They came along.
