About this pro

I've received a Bachelor of Arts in Music from UCA, having studied with classical guitar as my main instrument. I've got most experience and training in classical guitar, but I have other experience from performing in rock/metal groups, the UCA Jazz Band, and some worship groups. I also have experience with music theory, including arrangement, counterpoint, and 20th Century composition theory/techniques.

It's awesome whenever someone shares an interest in something that I'm passionate about and have begun pursuing as a career. And with that, I enjoy getting to experience the beginning of someones journey towards learning a new skill set, getting to guide them and encourage them in it, solving the more difficult parts of learning guitar and/or theory, then experiencing the victories over those obstacles.

FAQs


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Bachelor of Arts in Music; specifically classical guitar

Experience: rock/metal bands, UCA Jazz Band, UCA Guitar Ensemble, worship groups, solo classical performances, theory classes


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching at the Community School of Music in Conway while I was completing the last couple of years of my undergrad. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked mostly with children and teens from around 5-13, but I have also worked with older students as well.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone who is passionate either about teaching, about guitar/theory, or both. When you find someone whose more passionate, then your experience in learning it will be much more enjoyable.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about the goals you want to achieve and the purpose in those goals, whether that's wanting to just be a proficient musician, very knowledgable in music, or just being a well-rounded musician. When you're able to communicate these goals with an instructor, they're able to make their lessons more efficient in helping you reach those goals.
