Having been a musician for the last 15 years and a music teacher for the last six, I feel that at this point I can distill the most valuable lessons I've learned over the years and present them in an easy to grasp manner. As someone who continues to actively improve their own skills, I understand how to establish great practicing habits as well as get to the heart of what's most important in achieving different musical goals.

While guitar and bass are my primary instruments, I also play drums, keys, and ukulele. Constantly striving to revisit the state of being a beginner has allowed me to refine the universal qualities associated with learning in general, music especially. I have played in many different contexts, ranging from big bands and jazz combos to rock bands and recording projects. These different experiences have offered valuable insights into not only playing music, but also creating it and working together with other musicians. These insights are a joy to share and I feel that there's great value in helping others learn quickly and effectively.

The world of music is a vast one and the astonishing number of genres and unique artists is truly inspiring. When it comes to learning the particular language of a genre or artist there are specific nuances that create an overall feel when put together. I can not only show you how to practically employ those skills but I can also explain how it works in terms of theory, which can be invaluable when wanting to incorporate certain flavors into your own writing. My goal is to make your goals a priority while making the way there a fun yet efficient journey.

Thank you for your interest!

Experience

Guitar Instructor
Sep 2012 - Present
Self-Employed

I have been teaching music lessons throughout the last 6+ years. Originally, I started with guitar but now offer bass and ukulele. It's been a wonderful experience helping others discover how to express themselves through music. Being able to see a student's face light up when a concept clicks is one of the most rewarding aspects of teaching.

I was a guitar teacher at a local music studio. I used to take lessons from the former guitar instructor and the owner, who taught piano, offered me the position after the previous teacher had moved on. The location had to close due to rising rents.
