Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I'm a licensed k12 music teacher and professional musician who knows how to transform beginners into competent musicians. My lessons are fun, methodical, and tailored to each student so you're always learning in a way that works best for you.

After going through some basics I focus our lessons on music that the student wants to play. I use a variety of materials that I've created myself in addition to the usual method books and I've made all of my materials work just as well online as they do in person.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

Teaching since:

I’m a licensed k12 music teacher and professional musician with a passion for teaching students of all ages and abilities. Whether you’ve never played before or have been playing for years, I can help you achieve your musical goals.

Over the last ten years I’ve taught hundreds of private students and have worked successfully with many different learning styles. I’ve led dozens of students from their first notes to being fully competent musicians. I teach all styles: rock, pop, jazz, latin, country/bluegrass, funk etc.

Studying with me, you'll learn the music that you want to play in the comfort of your home. I'll teach you the basics of reading music and rhythm, but getting you playing your favorite music is always my focus.

I also have a lot of experience working with school band programs, so if you're a student or parent of a student in a school band or marching band, I know exactly what is needed to succeed in that environment.

Let's get started!
