Overview

I teach private piano and guitar, song-writing and performance lessons professionally. My experience has ranged from children as early as 4 to adults over 75.
I have a unique approach of teaching that is tailored specifically for each student and based off of a well balanced music education centered around the foundation of music theory and with a strong emphasis on ear training and performance, without losing the fun of playing music.
Feel free to ask questions about my specific curriculum.
I have performed in many independent music projects varying in scope from popular music to classical ensembles to hip-hop.
I am a professional audio engineer and music producer who specializes in independent original artists.

I mainly teach from my home studio, but am willing to consider traveling to you depending on location and time.

My availability changes, but I am currently accepting new students. Please contact me if interested.
