Want to play your favorite songs? Interested in learning to write and record your own music?
I am a professional guitarist from Norway living in New York City, with a BFA in Jazz and Contemporary Music at The New School in Manhattan. I can literally play ANYTHING from jazz, pop, rock, blues, funk etc!
I am also a music producer with experience with Logic Pro, Ableton Live and Pro Tools, with a background as an assistant sound engineer at Platinum Sound Recording Studios in Time Square.
I have experience as a guitar instructor at Mozart Music Studio, Queens Music Academy and Ukulele teacher at PS 361 Woodside elementary school. I also tutored students at The New School in theory, rhythm and ear training.
I see myself as a social, patient and polite person who communicates well with people of all ages. I am very focused on explaining the fundamentals about music music in a simple way, but at the same time being able to make it fun.
Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!
