I’ve been playing music my whole life, but it was as a high school student when I was asked to teach the school’s guitar class that I became a teacher. Since that time I’ve gone on to earn several awards, played in many different types of projects, and earned a Master’s degree. You might have heard my music before too if you’ve ever listened to a podcast, TV commercials, indy films, or played any video games. My most successful student thus far however, would have to be Jacob Tilley from the rock band Young the Giant.

 I can teach you about playing several different instruments, how to write, how to record your own music, and how to get your music career off the ground! As a youth, I was largely self-taught so my inspiration was always to have fun. I never had to deal with the “homework”style of practicing so I’ve naturally incorporated that approach to my lessons. My goal is to keep you (the student) inspired and having fun. When that happens you will become good at your instrument and feel as though you “played” your way to success!
