About this pro

As a person that had difficulties in school, I'm aware that everybody learns differently. I try to find what inspires my students the most to help them grow fast, and have them love the process. I'm also a Los Angeles College of Music alumni, where I get to work and learn from some of the best musicians and engineers that LA has to offer. As a musician, I have touring experience, I frequently gig, and have had experience with a multitude of bands and projects. As a producer, I am an Avid certified Pro Tools User, I have plenty of recording experience, access to a studio, and I have a complete production and mixing setup. On top of that, I really love teaching and I enjoy the process. 

I like to look at music as a fan first. I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing if I didn't absolutely love it. As a musician, I really enjoy connecting parts like pieces and being able to create something great. I think that it is important to pass on whatever you learn, and I've always loved teaching. My big thing is musical education, because without it, music wouldn't be constantly evolving in all of the ways that we love, and that it should.

    I had guitar lessons with Carlos in the past. He was really good at staying at my pace, and he never made me feel overwhelmed. All of our classes were fun and informative


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

If I have a new student, what’s most important for me to do first is figure out how they like to learn. It’s important that the time we use in class is spent effectively, rather than going around in circles. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all method of teaching, so it’s important for me to adapt to my students, rather than the other way around. 

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

I have an extensive résumé of production work, teaching, and gigs. I have produced dozens of artists, and I also have touring experience. I’ve had the fortune to work with and learn from what I consider to be some of the best musicians That LA has to offer. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I simply charge by the hour.

How did you get started teaching?

I initially started teaching when The lived in San Diego. It’s just something that I’ve always love to do, and I find nothing more inspiring than inspiring others. Because of this, I’ve been teaching since the age of 16. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I’ve worked with all types of students: blues players, jazz guys, rock players, Latin players, and pretty much every other generic genre you can imagine. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I frequently go to see live music at the Blue Whale. Whenever I go I have a great time. 

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

I would suggest they find a teacher who's work they love, that way you get to develop your own sound to something you will love too. 

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

Do I love the way my teacher plays?
