I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice and the journey of patience. The process of learning has helped me carve out and cultivate my style of music. It's opened up a lot of doors for me in my life. I've had the honor to play with a lot of great performers and have been lucky enough to tour the U.S. and Canada with festivals and showcases such as Vans Warped Tour, South By Southwest and the Halifax Pop Explosion.I've been the opening act for Carolyn Wonderland, Maria Taylor, Tsunami Bomb, Tilly and the Wall, Basia Bulat, Rise Against, Strike Anywhere. Anathallo, Cursive, Milton Hopki
When I have free time I volunteer with the Houston Chapter of Girls Rock Camp to help teach girls empowerment through songwriting and music.
*** Lesson Details ***
I began teaching as an afterschool job when I was 16. I was homeschooled, so I feel that the experience taught me that everyone learns differently and that there is not just one standardized method to playing music.
My teaching style varies with each student, but the one constant is my ability to make each and every client I encounter completely fall in LOVE with music. It's my super power.
Lesson plans are tailored for your specific needs and to help you achieve your musical goals and aspirations at your desired pace. I enjoy my students and making music with them.
Here is an overview of the lessons that I provide.

My goal is not so much teaching one how to play an instrument, but more broadly, to help one cultivate their own living musicality. My own areas of practice, study, and specialization are in free improvisation, sound art/Sonic sculpture, conceptual performance, and songwriting/composition. I've explored a vast number of different styles and genre. Jazz, classical, folk and bluegrass, spirituals, blues, punk rock, contemporary ghospel, electronic dance and ambient, to name a few... I love working with kids, I love teaching any age any skill level, I promise to listen, and fine tune our lesson to fit your specific personality and needs.
I've worked with students ranging from age 3 to age 62 in the year or so I've been tutoring. I've taught piano mostly ,but am more technically proficient with guitar(electic/acoustic/classical).
I'm a songwriter and recording/performing artist, my style is very ecclectic and inspired by anything from classical, jazz, avant garde, to pop and folk music. I'm confident and versatile. Im comfortable playing or even performing with most instruments. It's taken alot of practice, reasearch, experimentation, and collaboration but over time musc has give
I believe in the cultivation of a living musicality.
My approach emphasises the importance of process, exploration and discovery, as well as the study and analysis of traditional concepts. I propose, active listening to be the simplest form of composition. And as musicians an active ear is central, not only in practice, but generally, for creative evolution and innovation.
I've found the most effective methods effectively balance theory and practice.
I believe the biggest inhibitor to growth, musical or otherwise, is a lack of confidence. A lack that comes from too much pressure to produce idealized results-- fear of mistakes...
I embrace the developmental process,
I work with every student to make each lesson plan efficient, meaningful and inspiring.

I have been playing the guitar for over 5 years now. I really love music and I enjoy sharing that love of music with my students. I know enough to teach you the basics, and I can teach you how to read music as well. So if you're looking for a teacher that can teach you a few basics just to get your feet off the ground then I'm the teacher for you!
I am passionate about music and nothing makes me happier than to see others enjoy it as much as I do. I have been playing guitar for decades and have some performance experience. I focus on consistent and patient progress for children, teens, and adults. I even have recording and writing experience.

No more "air guitar"!!! Learn the basic chords or improve your knowledge base or learn to write your own music. YOU are the Master of your song!
I have enjoyed teaching at all levels, a part from creating, it is one of my passions. Teaching and watching my students practice and practice until they have mastered a chord, a song or create a beat, has always brought me joy that is priceless. Music is a strong global force that makes people feel good, gives strength, relaxed, pumped up, and brings everyone closer. I feel amazed and honored to pass my musical knowledge to you. Make time for your passion, and I will guide you.
The curriculum offered in these lessons are highly flexible depending on the needs and wants of the student. After establishing what their goal is, the student will go through an extremely efficient system of musical/guitar training that will lead to the desired goals in a reasonable amount of time.
However, no matter what the student's goals are, the curriculum will have a strong focus on making the student a great MUSICIAN. The guitar will be the way in which you will learn to express your developing musical ideas and interpretations of others ideas.
Some of the standard elements of the curriculum are: Picking/strumming technique, note identification on the fretboard, rhythmic exercises, chord construction, solo improvisation, music theory, ear training and much more!
I love teaching music because I know that I have the ability to translate my knowledge to all different kinds of people by helping my students learn the way that best suits them. There is no greater joy than seeing the progress in someone that you have been helping!
Here are a few things I have done in my career: Hoodoo theater production (Berlin, Germany), Of Monsters And Men tour (guitar), guitar for Ray Parker Jr. (Ghostbusters theme song), guitar for Freddie Washington, resident guitarist at Stages Theather (2017 season), (former) principle guitar at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, guitar for MOJI (Freepress Summer Fest & South
