Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My sole initiative and expectation is to delivery quality, student focused music education. The student and I will build a solid foundation by getting to know the fundamentals of the instrument, building muscle memory, practice, and having loads of fun in the meantime.

Learning music can be challenging and daunting, and I always strive to create a low pressure and highly engaging and encouraging environment for positive personal growth. Learning music is not just about the music, it’s a creative outlet and a way to express yourself and learn more about who you really are. I take great pride in being able to be a part of cultivating that experience.

My teaching style follows the Montessori method; the focus is on fostering learning where the student is larger part of the process. Each student learns at a different pace, is interested in different goals, and has individual and unique needs. I take the care to listen and guide, giving each student unique curricula to work from. There is not one book or method that works for everyone. I have found that by using these key concepts, the end result and journey are more enjoyable and rewarding for all involved.

As a parent, I have a strong grasp of the importance of childhood development and positive reenforcement. I believe that learning music at a young age can open so many doors and opportunities down the road, build confidence, and provide a wonderful outlet and means of being creative.

Teaching since:
2002

I started playing music in 6th grade, when I picked up the trumpet and joined the school band. From there I could not get enough. I quickly started playing the French horn and then got into guitar. I played blues, jazz, rock etc and decided I wanted more in high school and auditioned for a magnet arts high school in Denver. After attending the school held many gigs at local jazz clubs and then attended the Berklee College of music in Boston. I have been teaching lessons since high school and after that ran after school music programs throughout Boston. My goal is to give you or your child the best possible music education experience possible in the comfort of your own home.
