About this pro

I am a young musician with a fresh view on learning how to play guitar, piano, pedal steel, sing, and write music.  I was a Music Education Major at The College of New Jersey as well as Susquehanna, so I am very familiar with how to teach music to people, with many different approaches!  I am very involved in the Jam Band scene in Philadelphia, as well as the Bar Band scene in both Bristol and Yardley, PA.

Here are some of my accomplishments:

-Began writing music at the age of 10

-Began gigging when I was 13

-Released several albums

-Peformed in premiere venues in Germany, Czech, at the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville, TN, John and Peters, The Broken Goblet, Curran's Irish Inn, etc...

-Headliner band for Ohmfest

I want to spread my love and understanding of music to others.  Music is one of the most important aspects of my life, and I want other people to feel the same way!

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

We will sit down, address what it is the student is looking to learn, what their goals are, and how we are going to get there.  The only thing after that is to start learning!

An example of some of their goals can be:

-Learning to play like their favorite guitarist

-Learning music theory

-Having a better understanding of how to navigate the fret board

-Learning new scales, riffs, arpeggios, and chords

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

I have taken several music theory courses, as well as received the highest score on the AP exam.  
I attended The College of New Jersey as well as Susquehanna as a Music Education Major, so I am very familiar with how to teach people, and creating a roadmap to reach the student's goals. 
I have been playing in bands for 10 years now, which indirectly translates into teaching very well.  I have had to teach band-mates songs from scratch, sometimes even 20 minutes before a show, so I am very efficient!
