How did you get started teaching?
When I was a sophomore at the Denver School of the Arts (a grade 6-12 magnet school), my guitar professor recommended an 5th grader who needed help preparing for an audition at the school to me, who had never taught a lesson before. But, through consistent work with the student, he was in fact able to pass the audition and was accepted, and still attends there today!
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with students from an elementary school age all the way up to adults! I've taught beginners and gave pointers to others who were more experienced!

I have also earned full scholarships to attend summer programs in past years which have enriched me as a musician, including the swannanoa gathering guitar week, the Alex de Grassi summer intensive, and the Lamont school of music intensive.
