Lessons are based around your interests and the music you love. Whether you want to learn Led Zeppelin riffs, transcribe bebop solos by ear, sing and play along to Justin Bieber's new album or analyze Beethoven, I'll help you do it!
I graduated with a Bachelor's of Music in Classical Guitar from Webster University in St. Louis, MO and have worked in jazz, rock/metal, 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 have experience as a middle/high school music teacher and rock band director.
