Music has always been my passion since I was young. Even before I played any instruments I was always glued to the radio, eager to hear the next great song. Not only am I passionate about music, but I am passionate about helping others learn and to achieve a similar relationship with music that I have. Patience is my biggest strength in teaching, and with it I am sure I can deliver the best possible atmosphere to help you learn!
After playing guitar all through high school and playing in its jazz band for two years, I realized I really did want to make music a career. I attended Loyola University Chicago and studied guitar and music theory, earning a BA in Music and graduating Cum Laude. I was awarded the Departmental Award for my performances in ensembles, and for my Senior Recital, where I performed all original compositions.
My experience in several styles of guitar can help you too! I feel that this versatility can help teach you exactly what you intend to learn from your lessons, and I will work diligently with you in order to reach your goals!
I am now available for Skype lessons online!!!
