- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
As an instructor I have two goals with every one of my students.
1. To find what they love about the instrument and use that to build on practice/knowledge.
2. To teach them to know the instrument, as well as how to play their favorite music.
It was these two things that helped encourage my own music journey and I think they are incredibly helpful to keep anyone on an accelerated path.
When I was first learning the guitar, I quit. I didn't want to learn my scales, I didn't want to practice The Beatles (I was 13, cut me some slack!), and I didn't want to play like my instructor. It took me over a year to get back into it, which I only did because I found my drive to learn the instrument. Once I did, I came to the realization that I really only knew how to play songs on an instrument, but I didn't really understand the instrument itself. It was this that lead me to learn my scales and yes, eventually a few Beatles songs in the end!
I compose music for use in general sync licensing, including commercial and tv. My music has seen global distribution within commercial use.
I produce Indie Alternative/Singer Songwriter, and Pop for artists across Texas.
