About this pro

I have been playing guitar for 5 years and have been a musician my whole life. I play gigs weekly in the Tampa area and have experience playing in bars, weddings and festivals. I have been offered a guitar role for a tour sponsored by SONY along with a record deal with an indie label. I have created an original album and recorded it with a producer.

Each student has a different way of learning and has different goals set for themselves. I aim to personalize each lesson for you and your goals.

I feel the power of music and want to share this feeling with others.

Every call is returned! Satisfaction guaranteed (:

I love the look in my student's eyes when they play the song or perform the line they set out to.. I get excited about their accomplishments and want to watch their talent grow.

I call this the "what now look". I love to see the exponential growth of my students in their musical talents and confidence.
