I'm originally from South Texas, have lived in Chicago, and am now based out of Louisville, KY. I've been teaching for over 12 years, and I love it! Music is a huge passion of mine, and I love helping students reach their musical potential. Whether you're looking to learn to play an instrument you've always wanted to play, learn how to play some of your favorite songs, or just want to learn for fun, I'm here to help you!
Drum, Piano, Music Performance, Percussion
I am an energetic, enthusiastic teacher who cares deeply about the student's musical learning experience.
My music studies began in Louisville with well-regarded teachers John Roy (drumset) and Rick Mattingly (percussion). I later studied music at Bellarmine College and the University of Louisville School of Music. As a professional musician I have shared the bandstand with countless masters of jazz, rock and blues. A partial list includes legend jazz guitarist Jimmy Raney, vocalist Helen Hume (sang with Count Basie), local guitar legend Jeff Sherman, rhythm and blues group Backstreets, and many more. I currently play weekend nights at Volare Restaurant with multi-style group Jazz Vineyard. I do individual dates with Jazzcrafters, regularly record at two local studios, and Sundays I play in a Christian rock group at St. Francis in the Fields.
My hope is that my passion for music, experience, enthusiasm, and caring attitude will be a winning combination for my students.

I started playing piano when I was 8. I started writing compositions around 9. Since I was singing in the choir, I began to fuse piano and singing, until I wrote my first song with words when I was twelve. Along the way I learned guitar, bass, drums, and various forms of composition and recording techniques. I toured with my band The Navigators for several years and I have had compositions of mine in TV shows like "The Unit" and in the documentary "Dreamriders" as well as various independent films. Along the way I have taught every age group from six months of age up to adult.
