I am a musician originally from Cleveland, OH and moved here to Chicago about five years ago. I've been a lifelong musician playing piano since I was six years old and playing guitar since I was 14. I started teaching myself how to write songs when I was 15 and have been writing ever since. I studied music for three years at Columbia College Chicago and then transferred to the Audio Arts and Acoustics program and graduated with a degree in Audio Production. I have taught friends and children how to play instruments as well as use the application Ableton to create electronic music independently and love doing so. I hope to introduce you to the wonderful world of music in a fun and engaging environment that will have you craving to learn more.
