Hi, I'm Emily. I love to help students of all skill levels develop their style, musicianship, and creativity. Whether you're a seasoned picker just brushing up, or you're a total beginner, let's get you started on your musical journey.

Since 2002, I've played music professionally as a solo artist, band member, composer, session musician, and hired touring musician in many genres including rock, blues, country, r&b, folk, and metal. When obtaining my Bachelor's Degree and my Associate's Degree, I studied jazz and classical music. It is my pleasure to bring what I've learned from these experiences to my students.
