Teaches students:
and Ages 3 to 80

Teaching since:
2006

Hi ya'll! As a musician, singer-songwriter and early childhood development teacher, I specialize in teaching children (12 and under) beginner guitar through the means of fun, engaging lesson plans and enrichment play.
I am also experienced in teaching both technique and songwriting to ADULTS OF ALL AGES!
Your child will learn the technique needed to take him or her to the next level and will experience growth in self-confidence, creativity and self-expression through song-writing experimentation.

PERSONAL SUMMARY

As an experienced, enthusiastic and focused teacher I am committed to safeguarding and promoting the education and well-being of children while fostering and developing their creativity and self-expression. Inspired by the children in workshops I have led internationally, I have dedicated the past ten years towards not only teaching music, art, dance and theatre to our youth, but also helping children harness their creative skills as a means of self-expression, breaking barriers in language and culture diversity and celebration of self through creative arts.
