I am a voice, guitar, bass, ukulele songwriting and music theory teacher based in Los Angeles. I have over five years of teaching experience, and a lifetime of performance and writing experience. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2014 with a degree in songwriting. Since then, I have been working with several bands, writing and performing my original music and teaching students of all ages. My lessons are customized to fit you or your child's specific goals and interests. Above all, I believe music should be fun!

My daughter, Audrey loved her. Asked me if Arielle could come over every day. Wish we could afford that...for now once a week.
