Over a decade of academic training from highly acclaimed institutes and world renowned instructors has contributed to my development as an exceptionally knowledgeable pedagogue, experienced performer, and unique composer as both a soloist and ensemble/band member. With the highest objective being to cater to the ambitions and desires of each student's learning, it is hoped to guide students into the developing of musicians rather than just guitar players; encouraging the application of notation-reading, basic music theory, and performance practice.
Witnessing the growth and development of students' musical abilities is one of the most exciting aspects of teaching. An immense level of personal fulfillment is met each time a student becomes enthralled and captivated by a new exposure, learned technique, or noticeable progression within their guitar playing and musicianship. I love seeing students smiling at their own successes.
