I'm a performing guitarist in Dallas, TX. I play jazz more often than not, but also have experience playing many other genres (including alternative/experimental rock, blues rock, progressive rock, 19th century classical, 20th century classical, and ambient music). Some of the musicians I have played with have ties to jazz legends like Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, and Miles Davis.
I lived in Denton for 7 years while attending UNT, where I gained tremendous experience learning from and playing with others. Additionally, while at UNT, I took classes in the music department under professors Poovalur Sriji, John Murphy, Jay Saunders, and Steven Friedson.
Ultimately, I love to explore the expressive possibilities in music-making. I have studied and continue to study the ways that I can both expand and further refine my compositional and improvisatory voice through applied theory, practice, and imagination. It is this type of love and imaginative curiosity that I ultimately aim to impart onto my students.
I offer guitar lessons for beginning, intermediate, and advanced players. I specialize in jazz, but can also teach a variety of other styles. Feel free to take a look at the uploaded videos on my youtube channel or listen to my soundcloud/instagram clips for some examples of where I generally come from musically:
