Learn to play the music that you love!
My goal as a teacher is to create lessons that are fun, challenging and directly related to your goals.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in classical guitar from Webster University St. Louis and have played in jazz, rock and pop bands as well as in musical theatre, opera, choir and orchestra. I've spent the last 4 years traveling and performing in a top 40 show band, and I pride myself on teaching my students using real life experience and battle tested methods. I've been teaching for 7+ years and during that time I've taught privately, through music studios and in the public school system as a high school music teacher and rock band director.
