Are you looking to learn Guitar, Singing, Beatboxing or Songwriting? No matter what style you are in to, I can help you build the skills, confidence, & practice strategies to become a successful musician. Beginners, Intermediate, & Advanced all welcome!

Majoring in classical guitar performance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts I was a part of many performance opportunities. These included solo classical guitar recitals, weekly performance class, a collaboration with the Columbia City Jazz Dance Company, and a performance at the Columbia Museum of Art to name a few. Now I frequently participate in songwriting showcases, street performances, and collaborations with bands and music groups of many different genres.

In a lesson with me you will be focusing on four main areas:

1] REPERTOIRE: Songs you are working on in preparation for performance or just to play for fun!
2] MUSIC THEORY: Exercises in ear training, note-reading skills, sight-reading skills, and overall knowledge of how music works.
3] IMPROVISATION: Learn drills to improve solo skills and increase your confidence jamming with other musicians.
4] TECHNIQUE: Guitar lessons focuses on how to properly use the left and right hands in a way that that is relaxed and tension free. Voice lessons entail learning how to breath properly, prevent vocal strain, and expand your range.

In addition to instrument lessons I also provide Songwriting Lessons, Music Theory Lessons, and Music Performance Lessons for more advanced students + I teach Recording, Web Design, and Graphic Design subjects for Artists or others looking to learn how to promote themselves or their projects. (Subjects Include: Logic Pro X, WordPress, Web Design, Graphic Design, HTML, CSS, & More!)

Get started on your path to better musicianship today!

I’ve been taking guitar lessons as a hobby from Jeff for a few months and it’s been so fun! I take lessons online, which is super convenient. I’ve always wanted to learn to play! Can’t wait to see how far I’ll go!

Songwriting · In studio

Lessons with Jeff are awesome! The songs I write now have a much more interesting sound, rhythm, and structure than they did before AND I’m able to come up with killer harmonies, a skill that was always lacking for me. His methods are easy to grasp and when they do challenge me, he breaks things down and sets a pace that works for me so I don’t get overwhelmed. I always take something valuable and new away from our lessons.

Working with Jeff was easy! He makes lessons enjoyable, with reasonable material to learn and I’ve been able to progress with good time! He is patient and personable which is nice especially in a virtual setting.

Singing · Online

I have been doing online vocal lessons with Jeff for a short time, and I am so happy I decided to do them! I love to sing, but my confidence has been lacking. The vocal warm ups and the instruction surrounding them have really brought me out of shell and helped me to find my true voice. Jeff’s confidence in my abilities, coupled with practice have been so valuable to me, as well as inspiring. He’s given me that extra nudge to say YES to performance opportunities!

Jeff is fantastic! My son has learned so much in the three years he's been taking guitar lessons. Jeff not only helped him improve on the guitar but helped him break out of being shy, loosen up and be comfortable playing music around other people. We can't thank him enough!
