I have been teaching private lesson on and off since I was in college.  I have taken the last few years off to complete my graduate education and begin my formal teaching career.  I believe that encouraging my students to find fun in practice by choosing music that keeps the students interested.  This means taking music from both the classical and popular repertoires.

I have been a professional teacher and performer for ten years, touring nationally with funk, soul, and latin bands. The diversity of my experience as a performer has directly impacted my view on teaching. Excitement about practicing music comes directly from passion for music in general, and a key philosophy to my teaching method is to not only instill correct practices and technique, but to attempt to foster a life-long desire for musical exploration in my students. Exposing new musical ideas, exciting modern musicians and cutting edge genres to aspiring performers is essential in maintaining passion and focus for learning any instrument.

I believe anyone has the ability to learn music. I feel it is my duty to help my students discover their own musical path. It is my passion to show you, you have the ability to overcome any obstacles you may face in music. On May 1st I graduated from Weber State University with my Bachelors in K-12 Music Education. I got the chance to be instructed by great minds like Viktor Uzur (known worldwide for the Richter/Uzur Duo) and work along side talented students like Fan Ya Lin (pianist with a professorship at Julliard). This upcoming fall I will be attending the School of Music of University of Washington to get my masters in composition.

I began playing guitar at a young age, prompted by my infatuation with classic rock music as I idolized such groups as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Beatles, and many more. This was only the beginning of a life long intimate relationship with music and guitar playing. Since my first introduction to the guitar my musical tastes quickly expanded as I established a love for blues and all of its incarnations, from Chicago Blues to the varying acoustic and electric styles found in New Orleans, Mississippi, and Texas among other places. Through high school I played in rock and blues bands writing original music and getting my first real experiences as a composer and a bandleader. High School was also the place where I discovered my interest in Jazz music as I began playing guitar in the school's Jazz band. Following high school I began playing more jazz music as I attended Bellevue College studying theory and composition with Dr. Brian Cobb and guitar performance with Mark Hillard Wilson. After this I soon met renowned Jazz Guitarist Chris Spencer with whom I studied with for years to follow. I eventually found himself at Cornish College of the Arts where I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Music Composition. While at Cornish I had the opportunity to play guitar and compose for Jazz Orchestra, Latin Jazz ensemble, and Modern Jazz groups while playing under the direction of internationally know musicians and composers such as Wayne Horvitz, Tom Varner, Jovino Santos Neto and Chuck Deardorf. In the realm of composition I studied privately with composers Jarrad Powell and Tom Baker, with a deep focus in contemporary classical music. After college I worked as a composer for a few years writing music for theater and dance as well as doing residencies with different Seattle based companies. Currently I spend my time working as a guitar player in Seattle while also writing chamber music for various ensembles and art groups. I perform on a regular basis with a variety of groups in the Seattle area.

There is not one method that fits all students and all styles. Young children and beginners on the guitar need to slowly develop strength and control of finger movements, while still being motivated when they learn how to play along with their favorite songs. Intermediate players often need help to get into a smooth flowing groove, to lock in with a rhythm or to phrase melodies. Advanced players might consider a few hints, tricks and exercises to improve their techniques or apply music theory to a deeper understanding of a music piece.-A major component of student success is continuity which I can provide as a teacher with lesson and practice plans. There will always be a goal to achieve or a project to work on. The lesson plan is the path to a successful project.-I consider myself to be successful as a teacher when a student graduates and moves on. Then they prove that they can apply the skills and techniques they have learned and they continue their journey of music of the music they love and create themselves. -

What is the Best Age to Start Guitar Lessons?

...a very young student’s hands are not quite strong enough to play chords, they can still play simple song melodies on the first three strings of the guitar, all while learning to read music. Once they have progressed and built up some hand strength, the teacher may try introducing guitar chords at a later lesson. The guitar is a perfect instrument for young adolescents, whether they are interested in starting a garage band or in pursuing classical guitar. Most teens will probably want to play on an electric guitar with as big of an amplifier as they can get their hands on – but it still might be easier for them to start on an acoustic guitar. ...
