"Music is the best!" --Frank Zappa
That is the only thing I can claim to know for certain.
My ideals as a teacher are sound control, fun, and community. I teach all of my students how to play their instrument in a manner which they understand and enjoy. I demonstrate how much fun music can be once my student has the facility to create sound freely. And I inspire them to use this gift for bringing people closer together.
Since beginning my musical studies at California State University Northridge, I have been working as a musician in the greater Los Angeles area. Now over a decade later, I continue to perform and teach - enjoying the whole ride wherever it takes me. While my primary instruments are Contrabass and Electric Bass Guitar, I have technical know how on a wide variety of instruments. Some of these include the violin, guitar, and piano.
I'm also happy to teach students who already have technical facility are interested in learning about things like musicality, melodic phrasing, harmonic analysis, rhythmic accuracy, ear training, reading in various clefs, improvisation, and much more.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring whatever I need to a lesson, but I expect all of my students to take the initiative to have all necessary equipment for playing. That being said, if a problem ever arises in the procuring of this equipment, I am always happy to help in anyway that I can.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile!
I love to share my knowledge of music with other people. At UCLA I taught and performed for children of all ages in Los Angeles and around the world.
Teaching is important to me because I feel that music is all about connecting with others. It is also about so many other things: self expression, communication, and lifelong learning. Also, it's just plain fun. I want my students to enjoy learning as much as they do playing!
In our lessons we'll focus on learning how to play the music that you want to learn! And along the way we'll work on fundamentals that will allow you to branch out into other genres, too.
Music is my favorite thing in the world, and I want it to be yours too! It can change your life!

Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Upright Bass
I hold a bachelor's degree in electric bass performance from Musicians Institute in Hollywood.

I also worked at MI as a teachers assistant helping to run performance based classes, as well as helping students improve their chart writing and song writing skills.
