I am a recent Berklee College of Music graduate living in Chicago. At Berklee, I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional, blues, country, rock, and metal.
Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance. Here in Chicago, I am currently playing with various bands and writing my own music. My teaching style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. I envision teaching much like my teachings at Berklee where once my lesson was finished, I only wanted to go home and learn more. If you want to learn multiple styles from someone who is truly passionate about the instrument, I'm your guy!

I have over ten years of experience teaching violin and viola to students of all ages and backgrounds. I teach children as young as 5 years old up through adult. As a teacher, I cater to varying learning styles and use many different techniques to fit my students’ individual needs. I believe that no one learns in the same way, and as a result of this philosophy, I adapt my teaching to each specific, unique situation. I want music to be a fun activity where students can feel comfortable expressing themselves!

My passion is creating music and inspiring others to create music. I learned to read music at the age of 6 and shortly after started playing the trumpet. The opportunity to learn the language of music is such a great gift with many benefits beyond creativity. My passion is to give this opportunity to other young aspiring musicians. My goal is to guide each student according to their individual needs to reach their goals.

About Patrick

I began the trumpet at the age of 8 while in elementary school in Monroe, CT. I learned to read music at the age of 6 while playing the Tin Whistle. Irish music was offered at the Gaelic American Club my family was apart of. While in CT, I played with several groups: Litmus, an experimental jazz gr
