Guitar, Music Recording, Songwriting
Hey! I've been playing guitar and performing for about 20 years. I love rock/pop/metal/punk/country so that's what I focus on when I teach. I've toured around the US and Canada, my bands have performed at The Vans Warped Tour, Journey's Backyard BBQ, NAMM, and South By Southwest. I have performed with the following: Escape The Fate, The Used, Falling in Reverse, Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy), Karmin, Eve6, Switchfoot, Milo Greene, Family of the Year, Toshi Yanagi (Jimmy Kimmel Band), Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac), Lindsey Pavao (The Voice on NBC).
I am mostly self taught but did take formal lessons with Tommy Armstrong-Leavitt at Skips music in Sacramento. I also went to school and received my A.A. in Music from American River College.
Currently I play guitar with my band Hero's Last Mission. I'm endorsed by Presonus Audio, CAD Audio, IK Multimedia and Tronical Tuners.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very laid back. Music should be fun!
I like to find out what my students want to get out of their instrument. Weather it's being able to play along with what they hear on the radio or becoming the next Slash. My job is to set you on the right path and make goals to get you to where you want to be!
The fundamentals and basics are very important but it's also good to just be able to jam! I try and make lessons a good mixture of the two so you never get bored with playing scales and theory.
Let the fun begin!

I am an all-round Singer-songwriter, vocalist and performer. I teach from my humble small home here in Elk Grove, CA. I grew up right here in South Sacramento where I started singing solos in church choirs, playing guitar and songwriting since the age of 9. I studied opera (at BIOLA University) for 3 years then receive my B.F.A. in Music and Theatre from California State University of Irvine (Southern California). I moved onward and upward playing several leading roles on Broadway (New York City) for 18 years. Before that I performed in Japan, Brazil and all over parts of the Caribbean and South America. I also sung and performed at Universal Studios Florida and Disney World. My extended biography consists of being a 5 time Billboard Dance music charter, a voting member of the Grammy's, a Former Miss Orange County (Miss California/America Organization), I'm also a 12 times "Best Actress" Off Broadway/Regional/Stock (NYC) and I am a recognized Obie Nominated artist for writing the "Best Electronica Musical". I am also a member of ASCAP and AEA.
I teach One hour lessons, once a week only.
I believe that only some people on this earth were born to sing and that gift should be guided carefully, but I also believe that EVERYONE should learn to sing no matter what. Like getting good sleep, exercising and having a good diet, learning to sing is a must if you want a healthy, full life. I am NOT a coach. I am a teacher. Yes, there is a difference. I am very good at breaking down the voice and identifying the student's strengths and weaknesses using various exercises. I prefer to work with the students voice first before working on their performance skills (presentation of song). I am very patient, fun, enthusiastic, high energy and I love working with children as much as adults. I strongly support the basic skills: sight-reading (pitch and tone) and vocal control (posture/breathing). I have about 10 years of experience in teaching kids and adults privately.
C'mon! Lets sing!
