Teaching since:
2011

Hello, I am a professional musician that performs, composes, teaches, and produces music. I live and work in San Antonio, TX which is where some of the best tacos on Earth are made.

I have a B.M. in Music Education from UTSA and a M.M. in Percussion Performance from Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. My main instrument is percussion and I specialize in orchestral, jazz, and drum set performance. I have a passion for piano, guitar, bass, and music theory which I also teach.

Students can expect to have more freedom with the path of our curriculum since each student brings different needs to their lessons. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
