About this pro

I have been a full time musician/music teacher for over 20 years. I've done just about every type of gig you can think of and have performed in over 50 different countries. I've taught at several schools including 12 years as a music professor at the University of Tampa. Classes taught include ensembles, music theory, and private lessons for college credit.

I play all styles but if you want to hear some of my instrumental jazz/rock/funk it can be heard at

Music is what I am most passionate about and I enjoy sharing what I've learned in over 20 years as a full time professional musician with others.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first step is to determine interests, goals, and needs. Next, work towards achiving them.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a degree in music performance and have studied privately with some of the best musicians in the world.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$30 half hour. $50 full hour

How did you get started teaching?

I was recommended by my own teachers for most of my past  teaching jobs including The University of Tampa, University of South Florida (USF), Paragon Music, Music and Recording Superstore (MARS), and Dean Johnston Music.

What types of students have you worked with?

All ages, all styles.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I went to see B.B. King live for the third time just before he past away at the age of 89.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Having a great teacher makes all the difference. Make sure they are experienced, talented, and versatile.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What styles and instruments they have a passon for and if they have an interest in being a professional, or is it more for fun or a hobby. Both are valid but require a different teaching approach.
