Red Leaf School Of Music


About this pro

I am incredibly excited to be settled in Austin. Originally from Chicago, I've traveled extensively, playing music and learning from all of these experiences. Most recently, I was a musical director for Second City Theatricals, providing music and sound design for sketch and improvisational comedy shows. I have had the opportunity to work with many talented and famous comedians, including some now featured on Saturday Night Live and national television commercials.I received a degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I played in the 1st jazz band (guitar), 1st jazz combo (piano), classical guitar quartet, and an original rock band (guitar and vocals). I've been teaching music for almost 20 years, and currently teach all levels of piano, guitar, and music theory. My other professional experiences include recording and touring with Wind-Up recording artists Company of Thieves (keyboards) and playing guitar onboard cruise ships.In addition, I am very interested in physical and mental health (specifically yoga and meditation), and how these relate to making music. I believe that while music theory and technique are important, they can also be a hindrance if they prevent you from exploring and playing without tension and fear. As a teacher, I am passionate about helping you to develop your own musical voice, while making sure that you enjoy the process. I hope to have an opportunity to work with you or your family in the near future! (First 1/2 hour lesson is free.)
