Teaching since:
June 2004

I have been playing music for twenty two years, and playing professionally in the Seattle area for the last ten years as a teacher, songwriter, recording artist, and instrumentalist. I received a BFA in music from Columbia College Chicago with a concentration in Jazz Guitar. I love all styles of music, and the thing I enjoy most about teaching is learning about new music from my students and helping them achieve a skill they never thought was possible. I teach every level of guitar, songwriting, and music theory, as well as beginner and intermediate ukulele.
