Teaching since:

I've been teaching, performing, and writing music for more than 20 years. My students have fun and develop awesome new musical skills and vocabulary.

My number one goal is to help you become an independent, creative music maker. I can help you develop the skills and confidence to make music at any level, and in virtually any genre.

If you take lessons with me, you'll have fun, and you'll make connections to both the hows and whys of music on deep and practical levels.

Don't wait, it's always a good time to start music lessons!
