I am a violist, guitarist, and composer with nearly 10 years of experience. I recently received my Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Tampa, and wish to pass on my knowledge and skills to those who are interested and willing to learn.

Viola students will learn to maintain proper bow-hold and left hand positioning, and more advanced students will work on easy shifting of the left hand. Focus will be mainly on technical exercises and standard repertoire, including solo and ensemble pieces, though students always have freedom to choose to learn any piece within their ability.

Guitar students can learn either classical or acoustic styles, both of which will emphasize finger-picking technique. Technical studies are a large part of standard guitar repertoire, and will be the focus of lessons, along with any pieces that students would like to learn.

I am almost entirely classically trained, and by this nature I will focus on more classical aspects of music, though I always love to teach more contemporary aspects of music and learn right along with my students!
