Hello! I am an elementary general music, chorus and band teacher in Swampscott, Massachusetts. I recently graduated from Gordon College with a B.M. in Music Education. My primary instruments are saxophone and bass guitar, but I also teach beginning band, piano and guitar lessons for students of all ages. I am passionate about jazz and classical saxophone as well as all styles of music for bass guitar, from hip hop and R&B to country and blues. Piano lessons available in home on electric keyboard, but otherwise I must travel to you for all other lessons.
