June 2015

Hello! I’m a singer-songwriter with a passion for teaching. I have honed my technique through writing several hundred songs and working within the scope of a variety of genres. Additionally, I have recorded a few albums with various bands/projects I have lead/been apart of. I enjoy writing in the styles of rock, folk, jazz, and pop.

I first got the teaching “bug” when I had the opportunity to instruct a group of high school students on songwriting at an arts school during the summer. Since then I’ve been teaching private lessons in songwriting, guitar, piano, and voice for three years and I’ve graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with bachelors degrees in Music Industry and Jazz Studies.
