I have several years experience teaching all ages, from youth to adult, and all levels of musicians, from beginning to advanced. I have taught group lessons, band camps, high school marching bands, and individual lessons. From this variety of experiences I have learned how to make music lessons in any situation both effective and fun!

I love connecting with new people and learning about them. From there, we learn together how music best fits into your life!

    John is great - it’s fun and relaxed, but I leave every lesson feeling like I’ve learned something, and have something to work on for the coming week.

    Very pleasant person, I have a feeling that unless my personal limitations due to age intervene (I am 70 years old), things are going to go great.

    Frequently asked questions

    The first thing I want to learn about my new students is the reason they are looking for lessons! Whether you're an elementary school kid just curious about the guitar or an adult who is has always wanted to play the drums, I will tailor my teaching method to suit your needs.

    I attended George Mason University as a music performance major, and also took multiple music education courses. I have been a student of music since 4th grade, all the way through college!

    Lessons are $30 per half hour, $60 per hour. Pricing may change for multiple students/multi-instrument sign ups.

    I started in college to make extra money and quickly realized I love teaching!

    I have worked with ages 5 - 60, beginner to advanced. I have worked with special needs students and I am comfortable teaching all types of people. 

    Looking forward to the next music recital with my awesome students!

    Find someone who you connect with, and listens to your needs as a student. A great teacher can be a life changing experience!

    How often do I need to practice? How committed am I to coming to my lessons every week? What is driving me to learn how to play my instrument?
