Teaching since:

Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Emi began his formal training in jazz guitar with Berklee College of Music mentor and professor Bruce Saunders while attending college preparatory school at St. Stephen’s Episcopal. After graduating high school cum laude, at 18, Emi relocated to New York City where he attended The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music on scholarship.

Since arriving to New York, Emi has studied with instrumentalists and composers Dave Douglas, Marcus Strickland, Matt Wilson and Kirk Nurock; guitarists Adam Rogers, Mike Moreno, Peter Bernstein, Nir Felder, Steve Cardenas, Vic Juris, Jack Wilkins, Richard Boukas, and Rory Stuart; and pianists Joanne Brackeen, George Cables, Garry Dial, and Rachel Z. While attending The New School, Emi was a member of the audition based Herbie Hancock Ensemble directed by George Cables and Rory Stuart’s Advanced Rhythm Ensemble where he first met
and collaborated with young rising jazz stars pianist James Francies, vibraphonist Joel Ross, and drummer Jeremy Dutton.

Now an honors graduate, Emi continues gaining recognition in the modern jazz scene as a rising contemporary improviser, composer, and arranger leading/sidemanning gigs and teaching in the greater New York area.
