Teaching since:
2001

I'm a saxophonist, pianist, arranger & songwriter. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Professional Music Degree, and currently run a sheet music startup called NiceChart. I have been a Music Director for Middle School and High School Bands and also have over 15 years experience teaching privately. Private lessons allow a better transfer of knowledge and I love watching students progress!

I have been in touring bands, jazz bands, wedding bands, funk bands, and pop bands. Fun Fact: I was even once in a bossa nova Guns n' Roses jazz trio called Guns n' Nova. You could say I've played a lot of different styles.

I teach my clients in my comfortable home teaching studio in Clairemont, San Diego. I work with beginner and intermediate piano students and all levels for saxophone. I'm open to students of any age and musical goals.

In my music career I've performed with Steffan Lessard (Dave Matthews Band) and Ed Robertson (Bare Naked Ladies) and played in bands that have opened for Guster, Blues Traveler, and The Wailers.

Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Pop, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, and Classical.
