Teaching since:

Hi! I am a musician, writer, podcaster, videographer, and entrepreneur. I play guitar, piano, bass, drums, and mandolin. I am self-taught and teach an original method that prioritizes teaching you techniques you can use to eventually teach yourself. As a musician, you should always be learning new things. My philosophies and methods keep new and experienced students from getting stuck in practice ruts.

I am also experienced in writing and video production. Visit my website to see examples of my work. dandrake333.com I look forward to working with you.
