Hi! I'm an undergraduate student at Berklee College of Music, majoring in Composition and Jazz composition, with a focus in piano and guitar. I have been playing music since I was five, when I started taking classical piano lessons. I believe that it's never too early to start learning a new instrument, and I've had great experiences working with students of all ages! I have studied piano, guitar (electric and acoustic), and banjo, and I also sing and accompany myself. As a composer, I am well versed in music theory - both classical and jazz - and in various approaches to songwriting. I have a love for all kinds of music: folk and blues, jazz, classical, hip hop, etc... and would love to work with you on whatever it is that you're interested in pursuing!
Since I started studying at Berklee, I have been teaching private lessons part-time out of my apartment. Working with students of all ages and backgrounds has not only been fun, but has motivated and helped me to grow as a musician!
I gained a lot of experience in teaching music by assisting an older teacher with an established student roster in his home studio. He had students of all ages, from four to fifty years old, and by observing his teaching process and helping with his students I was able to learn the importance of individualizing practice approaches for students based off their different needs and areas of interest.
