About Me

"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.

About Me

I've been a professional musician and teacher in Los Angeles for 10 years, and I love to work with students of all ages. Taking music lessons should be an enjoyable experience all around, otherwise both the student and the teacher experiences suffer. So, with that in mind, I tailor every lesson to each student. I find and work with their strengths, which then allows the areas that need work to be addressed without having to focus on them. I give each student the tools they need to reach their goals--whether it's to master their instrument, learn harmony/theory, play a song or a whole gig.

*** Studio Equipment ***
At my home studio, you'll find everything you need for your lesson, just bring your positive learning attitude.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect each student to provide their own instruments and everything that they'll need to play (so, a keyboard for piano lessons; a bass, amp and cord for electric bass students, etc).

*** Specialties ***
I've used the Music for Little Mozarts and Alfred's Basic Piano Library, as well as mixing in worksheets and exercises to enhance the student's learning.
The methods, styles and genres that I teach are specifically tailored to each student, so what books and curriculum are completely different for each student. What works for some students doesn't work for others, so I work with each student to maximize their potential.

Please understand that I value and respect your time, and I expect the same from each student, therefore, I have instituted at 24-hour cancellation policy. If you cancel your lesson within 24-hours, I will still charge you for the lesson (some exceptions can be made). If you cancel over 24 hours, then I will happily reschedule the lesson. Thank you for your understanding :)

About Me

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!

About Me

I am a professional musician seeking new music students! I am an upright bass player with a bachelors degree in Double Bass Performance from California State University, Fullerton. I am also an experienced trombone player and have training in music theory and ear training. I additionally have an extensive background in mathematics.
I have a great deal of experience in teaching both music and mathematics (tutoring). I like to ensure the success of my students and will try multiple approaches to learning the same concept until it makes sense for the student. I am there for their benefit, after all.
