About Me

I have been teaching music since 2005. At first I taught an elementary school percussion section and eventually was the general manager of School of Rock, which is a nationwide chain of after school music programs. I attended college for music theory and composition and music business.

After School of Rock I went on to work at a local music college called the Institute of Production and Recording where I taught the Microsoft Office certification courses. Currently I am an adviser for students there.

Outside of working at the college I teach group painting classes. The smallest group I have ever taught is 6 people and the largest group was 40 people.

About Me

There is nothing better than the feeling I get when I step back from my easel and am amazed at what I have created and I believe that anyone can have that feeling for themselves. Visual art is a muscle that can be trained; all it takes is direction and consistent practice. I provide the direction and teach how to use the proper tools and applications for the medium and desired result. You provide the enthusiasm and passion to create the consistency.
Gone are the days of boring art class from school where you bring home an unrecognizable lump of clay for your mom. I believe that art lessons should be dynamic and fun. My lessons are tailored around your interests and I can use the styles you love to teach the fundamental lessons of line, color, chiaroscuro (using light and dark to create the illusion of three dimensions) and perspective.
If it isn't fun, why do it?

About Me

I played basketball for multiple colleges and continue to play and coach whenever possible. I have extensive experience with children and teens but would love to coach adults that want a lesson!
I have been painting for years and sold my paintings but have found it is an expensive hobby. I love to share my knowledge and experience the beauty of art with others as well as enhance their abilities to create pieces they'll love!
