As far back as I can remember, music has been a central part of my life. I grew up in a musical family; my father a drummer and pianist, my mother a woodwinds player, and my brother a bassist, I have always been surrounded by music.
A little about me:
I attended high school at San Diego School for Creative and Performing Arts, where I was involved with a number of nationally award winning music groups. Upon graduating in 2005, I became interested in recording and audio engineering. Eventually I was able to engineer and assist sessions at some of San Diego's top studios. This afforded me the opportunity to work with some really great musicians and recording artists.
In 2008, I attended Berklee College of Music - majoring in Professional Music with an emphasis on performance and composition, eventually graduating Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Music.
Currently, I am an active music performer and teacher in the San Diego area. I recently began teaching at San Diego School for Creative and Performing Arts as a music coach, where I work with students in the high school jazz program.
*** Studio Equipment ***
The home studio lessons take place in a music room in the home. The room includes a drum set, keyboard, amps, guitars, bass guitars and seating is available. Parking is on the street and driveway.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide their instrument and all necessary equipment, along with their music and a quiet space for the lesson. If it is a private lesson on drums or piano at my house, I can provide the instruments.
*** Specialties ***
I have been in a number of professional playing positions, and am comfortable teaching styles such as Jazz, Rock, Latin, Classical, Show Music and more.
