- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am a professional teacher, performer and composer in Sonoma County. I have a degree in jazz studies from UC Irvine and have been teaching and performing since 2013. I specialize in jazz, but I grew up playing Led Zeppelin, The Red Hot Chili Pepper, and Paramore. I currently lead three bands (a duo, trio and quartet), and play with about three more. My goal is to help my students reach concrete, achievable goals, from learning how to solo to mastering a walking bassline. I work with all genres, including pop, rock, jazz, country, and alt. - if you can think of it, I teach it!
I have been working with private students for over five years.
I worked as a music theory teacher while I was earning my B.A. at UC Irvine. I worked with small groups (less than 15 children) at a time teaching music theory and practice.
