Teaching since:

I'm lead and rhythm guitarist, composer and songwriter with over 10 songs on Spotify and have several thousand views of my music videos. I graduated from Amherst College with an A+ in Music composition. I have a solid background in classical, jazz and pop/rock guitar. My students range in ability from beginner to professional. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun.

I teach my clients in my creative and comfortable home teaching studio in Seymour, CT and also at student's homes.

In terms of collaborations, I've worked with singers, guitarists/bassists, pianists and other songwriters/producers/composers in a variety of musical styles. I was the lead guitarist for a musical production of Gospel in New York earlier in my career.

Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Classical, Jazz standards, Pop Songs, Rock, Country, Ballads, Traditional and Contemporary.
