My students benefit from my formal training in jazz and classical guitar in college.
I provide a student with build blocks such as chords, scales, right and left hand technique. My aim is to get the student playing music as soon as possible to keep it fun. I can teach a brand new student, one preparing for college or anyone in between who wants to learn guitar in a classical, jazz or rock style.
My mission as a teacher:
Make learning guitar fun.
Learn students goals and move them toward them.
Expand their horizons on what it means to play guitar.
I've been giving formal and informal lessons for 6 years. My students grow in knowledge, playing dexterity, musicality, and breadth of music appreciation.
I am a dedicated worker with experience teaching youth and inmates. I strive to make sure other people’s needs are met while goals are being meet. My music background has given me experience in working in a group setting as both a leader and subordinate for the greater good.
