About this pro

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition from Columbia College Chicago. I studied under Marcos Balter, Drew Baker, Ilya Levinson, and Ken Kumpf. I am a self-taught guitar player who has played-in and written music for numerous award winning producers, rock bands, jazz ensembles, and folk ensembles over the past 16 years.

Lessons, based on skill-level of the student, will incorporate college level material. I like to find that balance between challenge and reward for my students, so there's always a forward momentum! Rock, blues, metal, folk, jazz, and classical are genres I teach. I also focus on technique within each style, such as: scales, modes, chord inversions, finger-picking, hybrid-picking, tapping, sweeping, string-skipping, speed, and phrasing.

I love teaching people guitar and music, that includes: all ages and all skill levels! I'm very passionate about teaching, so I create individual lesson plans based off of the student's current skill level and goals. Ultimately I believe music is all about having fun! The more you have fun the more you learn!

Music helps with so many different aspects of life! It's therapeutic, let's you be creative, helps you focus, incredibly fun, and incredibly rewarding when you finally achieve a long sought after goal! 

Writing and performing music is an experience you can't get anywhere else!

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

I try to answer any questions new student's have at their first lesson. I like to give a simple pratice regime for the first month. I like to learn as much as I can about my students too, what kind of music they like, favorite artists, what their main goals are with playing music! 

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