First, I am a student of music. I am currently studying Jazz guitar under the infamous Joe Negri (actor "Handyman Negri" and music composer for Mr. Rogers) and Classical guitar with James Ferla and Irvine Kauffman. I also study Voice with Richard Teaster (director of University of Pittsburgh's Men's Glee Club). This fall, I won the University of Pittsburgh's Battle of the Bands with an acoustic set and was rewarded with opening up for Pitt's Annual Fall Fest.

Also, I have strong understanding of psychology and learning in general. I pride myself on creating a comfortable atmosphere for students, which is the starting point in learning. I have taught as the Lead Coordinator at an after-school academy in Pittsburgh. I have a Secret Security Clearance with the Army National Guard and updated Child Abuse Clearances.

I'd love to be apart of your child's musical adventure. I know mine has been an incredible ride.
