Music is an exploration. Human beings are musical by nature. We walk to a beat, we dance to a beat, we communicate to a beat, and our hearts beat to a beat. My goal as a music teacher is provide knowledge in how we can use music to express ourselves. Through our musical exploration it is important to learn from everyone, follow no one, watch for patterns and most importantly to work every hard!

My educational background is from Arizona State University, where I studied music therapy and guitar. I received guitar instruction from Frank Koonce who is internationally acclaimed as a performer, teacher, and writer.

Through my studies as a music therapist, I have learned and practiced various way to provide the best instruction and musical experience to students of all ages and learning styles.

Due to covid-19 it is important to continue to grow and learn new skills. I have invested in high quality video cameras and audio equipment to provide the best quality lessons.

About Neil S.

Extensive knowledge in various styles of guitar, ukulele, and music theory. I have two degrees in music therapy and psychology.

As an educator, I believe in making the musical experience fun and educational by creating an individualized lesson plan that will provide each student with the best opportunity for success. I have worked with a wide range of students both in age from 4 to 90 years old. Also experience working with students who have learning disabilities.

I believe that music is a life long journey of exploration! We need to learn from everyone, follow no one, watch for patterns, and most importantly work very hard.

Due to covid-19 it is important to continue to grow and learn new skills. I have invested in high quality video cameras and audio equipment to provide the best quality lessons.
