I've been playing music since I was in 5th grade. I started out playing cello, then eventually moved to electric bass when I was in 7th grade. After playing around on an old guitar in my home, I found a passion for guitar and started playing that when I was about 13. I started writing tunes and playing with people around this time as well. Throughout high school I played in bands and took lessons. Eventually, this would lead me to music school for classical guitar at my community college. In two years, I got my associates with a 3.7 GPA. I then went to SUNY New Paltz for jazz guitar. In this time I learned how to play piano and sing as well. I graduated with a 3.5 from New Paltz in two years. I moved to Brooklyn in August of 2013 and am currently trying to make a living playing music. ...

I've been teaching Scrugg's-style and melodic banjo playing for over 10 years. I focus on ear-training, right and left hand technique, rolls, reading (both tablature and standard notation), and sound.
