Bass Guitar, Guitar, Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting
I have been working as a musician for 25 years, playing all styles. From polka to jazz, and classical to hip hop I played every gig I could get! This helped me grow as a musician and an educator.
I play piano, guitar, bass, and the touch guitar. A guitar with the octave range of a piano, by which the performer plays bass and guitar simultaneously by touching (or tapping) the strings. I've been playing touch-style for 20 years and I teach master classes on the technique. I also teach music theory, harmony/arranging, and musicianship/performance classes.
In addition to being a graduate of the Hartford Conservatory of Music [Hartford, Connecticut], I also studied at the University of Limerick, Ireland, and the University of the Arts [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania]. I have performed solo tours in the United States, Ireland, Belgium, and Holland. I've also performed with Ray Brown (jazz bassist), Glenn Branca (avant-garde composer), and many other talented musicians.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.
But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's ok too!
I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.
Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...
Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

I am a professional musician in the greater Seattle area. I graduated from Western Washington University in 2009 with a bachelors degree in music performance. I have been an instructor at the Vashon Drum Camp for 6 years and have taught at a local high school for the last 3 years.
Since 2010 I have been a member of Sound Wave - the official band of the Seattle Sounders FC, and have also recently joined Blue Thunder - the Seahawks drum line, for the upcoming season.
Having played professionally for a wide variety of groups/projects I bring a well rounded, versatile approach to teaching. Unlike some other instructors I am a gigging musician and know what it takes to perform at the highest levels, from classical to post-rock, and can teach you to have this same all-encompassing approach that will leave you feeling comfortable behind any instrument in any musical situation.
In addition, I have experience teaching autistic students. I have seen amazing results in the past and feel comfortable teaching anyone, learning disabled or not.

I've been exploring music since age 13 when I started with bass and guitar. I've gigged around the Puget Sound area with different types of bands. I've been playing classic-rock styles, blues, acoustic folk, big band, r&b, punk rock, reggae/ska/rocksteady and experimental/alternative styles. I've played in numerous college ensembles and I studied music in Boston and Seattle for four years including some summers.
