- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My teaching philosophy does not change across instruments, so the way I teach will give students a comprehensive understanding of their instrument in addition to the foundational music knowledge required to play with people and be an effective communicator.
- Teaches students:
- Ages 4 to 55
- Teaching since:
I began teaching myself guitar after two years of experience with the saxophone in middle school band. I furthered my understanding through my studies at UCLA, forming relationships with professors, music students, and LA-based professional musicians/composers.
I followed my curiosity and used my understanding of guitar as the foundation for learning piano. Piano solidified my approach to playing music, and continues to be the basis for how I teach. Few other instruments allow for a well-rounded understanding of the following concepts: melody, rhythm, and harmony.
These pivots in my music philosophy have made me resilient, adaptable, and allow me to continue to grow without the limitations of favoring one particular school of thought.
