I am a working jazz/classical guitarist in the Northeast Louisiana area. I currently hold teaching residencies at Matt’s Music, Paul Hewitt Music, Strauss Youth Academy, Questech Learning Center and Geneva Academy. I have a Bachelor’s in Instrumental Music Education (K-12) that I obtained at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
I am unique in the aspect that I am very patient and will work hard to push a student in the direction that they want to go - I firmly believe that the ‘right’ way to learn, is to learn what you want to play.
Currently I maintains a rigorous gigging schedule, playing five days weekly at the Warehouse No. 1 and Copeland's of Monroe, performing jazz and classical repertoire for solo guitar. I have taught students who have successfully auditioned into college jazz guitar
programs at ULM, UNO and UNT.
I have extensive teaching experience with people of all ages, and I offer recital opportunities throughout the year. I have a passion for guitar education, and I seek to share my passion for the guitar and music education with every student I encounter.
