I have 20 years of experience plus 30 years of gigging and an academic background (USC and GIT with honors). I have worked on many major festivals including a backing Grammy winner Diane Schurr. I play multiple instruments so that I can address issues of ensemble playing (playing in a band setting). I don't have a single approach to teaching. I find what works for each student and teach them according to their goals and learning style. I am extremely patient. I offer home based studio instruction in order to pass on a discount to my students.

I offer a computer equiped studio that includes recording software as well as programs like Band in a Box and the Amazing Slowdowner. I also offer ensemble classes in a studio equiped with full live band equipment.

The best part of my job is watching people get to the next level and surpass their original goals.
