I have been making music since the age of 10, and have studied with both jazz and classically trained teachers from Juilliard, Berklee, and the University of Texas. I began as a guitar player and very quickly added banjo, mandolin, and bass guitar to my repertoire. I currently play all instruments listed with various bands around Los Angeles ranging from irish celtic/bluesgrass/rock and pop genres. I also have extensive experience working with children in the arts as a counselor at the Dougherty Arts Center in Austin, Texas, an actor on numerous Disney and Nickelodeon television shows, and currently a volunteer for the Young Storytellers Foundation in Los Angeles.
*** Lesson Details ***
I have a fun, laid back approach to teaching yet strive to inspire each student to make the most of their learning process. I've worked hard to strike a nice balance with my curriculum that allows students both the freedom to learn what they want to play, while also helping them develop a knowledge of music theory and the fundamentals of their instrument. Whether you're looking to impress your friends around the campfire or want your kid to be a rockstar, I am the teacher for you!
