About Me

I began playing guitar when I was 13, and have loved every minute! After studying privately for a few years, I started gigging in local bars and coffee shops during high school in my hometown of Ocean Springs, MS. During high school I studied classical and jazz guitar in preparation for a college degree in music. I enrolled at the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) in 2004 to study classical and jazz guitar; during which time I played in many festivals, masterclasses, and concerts throughout the southeast. While a student at USM, I put myself through school by teaching private lessons and by gigging at private parties, weddings, churches, festivals, and in local bars. A few times a year I also play in the pit orchestra of various theater productions. Upon finishing my undergraduate degree in 2008 in Jazz Studies, I continued to perform in jazz, classical, and pop groups as both a leader and a sideman while pursuing a Master’s degree in Music Theory, which I finished in the Fall of 2011. Now living in New Orleans, I regularly perform in the city and throughout the southeast as both a sideman and a leader. I have taught privately and in the university setting for the past 9 years, and many of my more than 300 students have gone on to become successful performers, college music majors, or just hobbyists who love to play. As a professional gigging guitarist in a diverse array of genres, I can provide the insight and experience that are essential to fostering the talent of any developing guitarist.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to improve their skills while studying with me, whatever their level upon beginning lessons. I am strict about practicing and fundamentals, but do not force students to work at something that is not pleasing to them. I always find a way to incorporate any technical or theoretical concepts we are working on into learning tunes, that way we don't get bogged down working on details while never learning actual music. I do not use a set curriculum for my general guitar students, but jazz and classical students are asked to purchase certain method books and sheet music as needed.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room/Designated Music Room: Piano, guitars, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have everything they would need for the first lesson or so, but I do expect them to own their own guitar, picks, tuner, and capo(if needed) by the second month of lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz guitar, but am comfortable teaching in any style including Classical. As far as music theory is concerned, I can tutor at any level, and also am able to give instruction in beginning composition.

About Me

I hold a Master's in Voice Performance degree from University of New Orleans and Bachelor of Science degree in Voice Performance from State Music Academy, Sofia, Bulgaria.
In 2001, I toured with International European Opera Company which performed numerous times in Denmark, France, Italy and USA.
I currently perform and teach in the New Orleans area and love to share my knowledge and experience with my students. There is so much more to performance then just beautiful vocalizing.....

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching is based on my own personal, classical training from Europe and North America. Whether it's opera, oratorio, musical theater or pop-style singing that is desired, I believe that classical technique is an essential source of proper singing that can be used to train singers of all genres.
Lessons are tailored to the student's individual goals and abilities. Music history and theory, as well as vocalization, posture, breathing, diction, tone production, and general technique are incorporated into each lesson.
In addition, the students also participate in performance master classes and recitals, learning stage presence and concert etiquette.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio room, 2 full size keyboards, music stands, book shelf, desk, parking lots (free).

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Music Theater, Jazz

About Me

Since 2004 I have dedicated both my undergraduate (Parkland College, Illinois State University, Bradley University) and graduate (Southern Illinois University) studies to music performance and pedagogy, focusing on classical guitar. The majority of my teaching experience comes from a three-year Graduate Assistantship that I held while at Southern Illinois University, which included teaching the guitar to music and non-music majors in group and private settings. Outside of my responsibilities as a Graduate Assistant, I taught the guitar to children in group and private settings, and served as a juror for student guitar performances at both grade school and college levels. As a performer, I have experience as both a soloist and a chamber musician. These experiences have provided me with unique insights about practice habits, avoidance of performance-related injury, and managing performance anxiety. My teaching and performing experiences have yielded an approach to music education that is both supportive and challenging, which are essential characteristics of effective guitar instruction for students of all age and skill levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very patient, easygoing teacher who promotes a positive and encouraging learning environment. Use of specific methods varies with the age and skill level of the student, which may be supplemented with additional materials when appropriate. After taking lessons for several months, the student will be familiar with rudiments involved in playing the guitar and be able to play some of its repertoire. Ultimately, it is my hope that students will develop a lifelong passion for learning as much as possible about this amazing instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two guitar amplifiers, music stand, manuscript paper, seating.

*** Specialties ***
I'm most familiar with the classical guitar and its technique as I studied this in school. However, I began playing on steel string acoustic and electric guitars, so I'm comfortable using a flat pick as well.
