I am a professional guitarist with almost ten years of performing history. I have a bachelor's degree in Jazz Studies from West Virginia University.
Before moving to Brooklyn, I was apart of multiple performing and recording acts of a wide array of styles in the Pittsburgh music scene. I was the lead guitarist in three local groups while also doing freelance work with different groups/solo artists. Along with performing for other groups I ran my own jazz quartet for six years, playing independent shows, weddings, and even running our own jam session for four years.
I have had the pleasure to be teaching now for three years, independently running my own studio. I teach students of all ages and skill levels. Each student who comes to me comes with their own individual needs and goals, which is why I develop each lesson plan to cater to the individual. If you would like to learn to play for your own enjoyment then I can have you strumming through songs in the first couple of weeks. If you see yourself wanting to dig into advanced concepts then we can dive deeper into theory and technique. Regardless of each student, all are given the foundation to find long lasting success and enjoyment.
I teach my students in my comfortable studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn, or travel to the students house if they prefer. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach all your musical goals!
