As a session musician, producer, engineer, performer, and teacher, I am excited to help my students learn in all aspects of music. I have been helping my fellow musicians with their projects for years, and frequently fill in as a session drummer or bassist when needed. Whether you want to sharpen your fingers, or create your own musical masterpiece, I can help!

Teaching music is very enjoyable to me, because it involves helping students navigate some of the same challenges and discoveries that I made when I was younger. It's a form on mentorship that is incredibly rewarding. Plus every now and then, I learn something from my students.

    Frequently asked questions

    I will try to learn as much about them as I can: their level of skill and experience, style, goals, motivation, and preferred method of learning.  Then we will proceed by making a plan to achieve the student's goals.

    I started giving lessons to some friends of mine, in addition to seeking out new students in Denver.  I've made connections through a variety of channels.

    I work with all levels of students, from absolute beginners to experience multi-instrumentalists who want to expand their knowledge.

    Not too long ago, I got an invitation to fill in a spot at a show for a local venue.  They had a band drop out several weeks before the show.  I booked my band, Fat Brando.  Then we heard that the whole lineup dropped out, and they wanted us to fill in the whole night!  I made some calls, and ended up playing both as a solo act and with the band.  It was a blast of a night that was put together last minute through hard work and preparedness.
