I have a deep passion for music making and music education. I take pride in watching my students progress, develop and excel. I have helped all level of students, from early beginners getting over the beginner lessons hump, to students preparing to enter college and hobbyists or professionals trying to sharpen their skills. I am proud of the work that I have done and love to share my knowledge and experience with others!
Teaching guitar, bass, ukulele, and music theory lessons to students of all ages and skill levels.
I am an active composer and producer. I write and record music for use in film, television, and other media.
With over 10 years of teaching experience with students of all ages and skill levels, I am an expert in the field of guitar, ukulele and bass music education. My students receive the highest quality education that compares to any music school, yet on a smaller, more personal level. I care about cultivating the whole musician with an emphasis not only on technique and theory, but the love of music. I understand and care deeply about my individual students needs and learning styles. My approach will vary with every student. I am able to asses beginners (of any age) to see if they are ready for guitar or ukulele and am able to help the most seasoned player prepare for any gig. I love working with anyone interested in music that would like to explore their talents and creativity!
Studying under Bruce Forman, Pat Kelley, Nick Stoubis and Frank Potenza I earned my degree in Jazz guitar performance from the Thornton School of Music at USC. My formal education started with classical guitar under a former student of Andres Segovia, which continued throughout college under Adam Del Monte and James Smith. I am a professional musician and composer and am an expert in the fields of pop/rock/folk/blues, jazz/improvisation, music theory, classical, composition/song writing and recording/music production. I am an active performer and studio musician. My music has been featured in film and TV as well modern dance productions across the country.
The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) is a membership association of more than 480,000 US composers, songwriters, lyricists and music publishers. The ASCAP is committed to nurturing music makers throughout their careers.
