About this pro

I'm all about getting people excited about music! I offer a laid back style of music learning, with an emphasis on learning the instrument of your choice rather than just focusing on learning songs. My philosophy is, If you teach someone how to play a song, you'll have to keep teaching them songs, but if you teach them to play the instrument, they'll play for life! Let me help you get to where you want to be!

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

I tend to start at square one with a new student. If the student has previous experience, I'll assess their skill, and move forward from there. If the student is a total beginner, then I will start them with the basics of building hand strength, familiarizing them with the fret board, and getting callouses developed. From there we will work our way to basic chords, rhythms, and learning songs! 

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

I went to school for music at Richland college, though I didn't finish, the skills and knowledge from those years have helped me be successful over the past 4 years of music teaching!

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

I typically charge $40 for a single half hour, or a package of 4 lessons a month for $150/ month. I can be flexible on the payments, splitting them up however works for  you. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with every age type ranging from 7 to 70! My style is adaptable to any learning style.

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

1. Why are you wanting to pick up the instrument? Its good to think through your "why" before you jump into learning, it just helps you push through the hard times and mundane parts of learning an instrument.

2. What style/ genre of music do you wish to play/ learn?

3. How much time per week do I have to commit to learning the instrument?
