My lessons take what the students are passionate about and build a curriculum around it. When students are learning things they're interested in, they actually want to practice and put in the work outside of the lesson. My goal is to make learning guitar, ukulele or piano fun and informative, in a low pressure setting. In addition to private lessons, I seek live performance opportunities for my students to gain experience performing and collaborating with other students. ... View Profile

Having an instructor who is an exceptional musician is important, but even more so is finding an instructor who can see you clearly, your strengths and where you can improve; where you excel and where your frustrations thrive. The best instructors know when to push you and when to give slack, and always expect the most from you.I am one of these teachers. My experiences range from classical training and performance, to math-rock bands in dive bars, to songwriting and directing, to African percussion. You will find in me a well rounded teacher who knows how to give you the specific set of tools you need to grow as a musician, and as a human. E ... View Profile
