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.

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.
