I'm a producer, vocal editor, and guitarist. I can compose and produce (very well) in a wide range of styles, I'm the best vocal pitch correction guy I've ever met, and I'm pretty darn good at guitar sometimes. Check out my website for exhaustive examples of my work!
I enjoy meeting the demands of a wide array of students. Doing something different every day (and doing the hell out of it) makes me feel good, and everyone's goals are attainabl

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My process involves a few very light questions, focused on goals, available time, prior experience, etc. After a few simple questions, we can start putting together a simple and effective roadmap that makes reaching goals much clearer!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I attended MI from 2007-2009 for guitar composition, and I've been a record producer since then as well. Since I do this full-time, every day is akin to a new lesson for me. The way I see it, I'm learning as much from my students as they are from me
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I typically charge 35/hr for lessons at my home studio, and 50/hr for lessons in which I travel. Simple and straightforward
How did you get started teaching?
I've always been an avid reader, and when I got into music, it was a natural extension for me to start teaching. I've been tutoring on matters of music since I was in high school!
What types of students have you worked with?
I've worked with every type of student imaginable, from absolute beginners to members of sucessful touring bands to multi-platinum producers. Everybody can learn something, somewhere
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
My best advice would be to sit down with someone and see if they are listening to you, and make you feel comfortable. After that, it's all about consistency and accountability. Make sure theyre willing to have the amount of buy-in on your experience that you desire!
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Ideally, the teacher should have a basic questionairre that handles most inquiries a student would have regarding the content of their lessons. Scheduling is always an area of emphasis, so make sure everybody is on the same page about this. It's underappreciated, and makes lessons a breeze for everyone involved!
