Teaching since:

I have been playing guitar and bass for 19 years. In that time I have written, recorded and produced 6 albums of original music and toured the west coast three times. In 2011, I began my formal music training at Shoreline Community College. I am well versed in the many genres of rock and roll as well as classical, jazz, country, and worship music. I have performed in jazz groups, worship teams, rock bands, solo classical guitar and played orchestra guitar in Shoreline Community College's production of the play "Working" by Stephen Schwartz. In addition to my varied performance experience I have contributed original compositions to 8 student games produced at DigiPen Institute of Technology. I am a well rounded musician with a ton of relevant experience and I am looking for an opportunity to share that with others.

Banjo · In home

Well, it was my nine year olds first lesson and we're all feeling optimistic, so that's a good sign! Ryan gave me some pointers on banjo shopping before I ever signed up for lessons, told ya what book we would need, and he showed up with parts I didn't know we needed! Looking forward to next week :)
