Hello and welcome! I currently offer lessons for Guitar, Voice, Piano, and Music Production.
Music is my passion. It's one of those great things in the world that you wouldn't want to be with out.
During my journey with the guitar I have had a chance to study with virtuoso players such as Paul Gilbert, Chris Broderick, Dan Gilbert, and some of the top guitarists and musicians in the business. I have recorded with Doug Pinnick from Kings X and have played with one of the biggest Christian bands in Los Angeles playing for thousands of people as a member of "Press Play."
In addition, I hold a degree from one of the best contemporary guitar schools in the world. At Musicians institute I had a wonderful opportunity to study and play with some of the best teachers and students learning every style of music. It was one of the most musically enriching experiences! I have produced and worked on projects for members of Melissa Ethridge as well as mixing projects for jazz virtuoso Marcus Singletary, and many more. I have over ten years teaching experience giving lessons to beginners to professional musicians. Currently I work in a band, compose music for television and film, and teach music! I am looking forward to the next aspiring student who would like to take their musicianship to the next level!
*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson plans are designed to be musical and fun. I want my students to understand the language of the music by studying their favorite bands and understanding the theory behind it. I have a strategy for everyone starting from beginner, intermediate, to advanced. I remember picking up a guitar for the first time and what a struggle it was to play my favorite songs. There is a method for achieving these goals and it is different for everyone. The one thing that will allow you to succeed is having a desire to learn and a passion for music. If you have those two things then I can direct you to the right path to achieve your musical goals!
