Overview

I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and I'm currently available to teach in your home. I've been a working musician for fifteen years. Picking up the guitar in high school, I quickly realized my life's goal of bringing music into people's lives. I've worked my way through various bands, learning (the hard way) that a stylistic diversity is not only the key to success in the music business, but also a path to cultural awareness. Eventually, when studying bass guitar with renown bassist James Kirk, I developed a passion for the rhythmic aspect of music and the bedrock of groove that the bass provides.

I first discovered teaching when by volunteering with 826CHI, a Chicago-based organization providing after-school tutoring to under-privileged children. Finding that I have a natural aptitude for clarifying academic subjects, I went on to work for several test-prep tutoring services. I've also taught guitar and bass at a large music store.
