I offer private lessons for marimba, piano, and percussion for students of all ages. Along with private lessons, I have also taught clinics, masterclasses, and ensembles since 2011. Some of my past students have placed in honor bands (Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra, All Southern Honor Band) and have continued to pursue music in college (Eastman, UCLA, CSULB).
During the course of these music lessons, I train students to become technically proficient on their instrument, expand their knowledge of music through music theory, history, and ear training, and help develop their musicality through method books, solos, and standard repertoire to reach their highest potential. I have found that students who take private lessons regularly end up better equipped to tackle all sorts of challenges and adopt creative methods in solving problems within or outside of music.

I love connecting with students' passion for music or for anything else that they enjoy in their lives. I am also thankful for my students' families for being so supportive of their activities and being an integral part of this journey.

I have taught students from ages 4-adult ranging across all levels. Some of my advanced students pursued music degrees in colleges while others started learning music with me for the very first time.
Be honest with your expectations and communicate what you want out of your lessons. There is no 'correct' or one way to learn music!
