I have played and taught music professionally for the last 8 years. I have a diverse background as a musician, playing multiple instruments (drums, guitar, bass, and piano), composing, arranging and producing. Lessons are personalized and accommodated for the student's personal needs/goals. My lessons consist of technique, music theory, sight-reading, and most importantly learning songs/music that you want to learn. In addition to teaching you all the basics of guitar, I try to incorporate time in each lesson where we are both jamming with each other. Since I play multiple instruments, I love being able to jam with students, so that they are able to learn how to make music with other musicians. ALL AGES WELCOMED!

I am a drummer, composer, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, and educator based in Philadelphia. I am a graduate of the University of the Arts with a bachelor's degree in jazz instrumental performance. I have performed and recorded with various artists at different venues throughout Philadelphia and New York. I have experience playing a variety of musical styles: Jazz, Funk, Rock, Pop, Country, Musical Theater, Blues, etc. I have played notable music festivals and prominent music venues such as 2017 Monterey Jazz Festival, Pleasantville Music Festival, Brooklyn Bowl, The 55 Bar, World Cafe Live, The Iridium, and several others. In closing of 2019, three songs that I recorded drums on with NY based artists, Mosa and Andrew Weiss & Friends, were featured on Billboard, American Songwriter, and Glide Magazine. In addition, I have my own project, called “Wack Cheddar” which is a Philadelphia based jazz-funk-rock band. We released our first EP in July 2019 called “Who Cut The Cheese?”.
