As a composer and multi-instrumentalist, I have put myself in a position that brings me across an extremely wide and dense variety of music that I've been only too happy to explore. In addition to my long-running classical training with piano, clarinet and composition, I've explored jazz, world, rock, fusion, electronic and avant-garde music through the acquisition of my composition degree and through extensive research and self-teaching with saxophone and guitar. A very important aspect to my enjoyment of all of these pursuits is the degree to which they actually connect and overlap with many other topics and disciplines- science, mathematics, visual art, language and sociology all intersect with music at one point or another. This indiscriminate enthusiasm that I have for all music and all topics is something that I am very excited to share with and impart upon my future students- and that I have every intention of carrying with me into each lesson that I teach.

For beginning students of any age I start out with basic open chords and how to switch between them. We'll eventually try out different picking patterns with these chords and some simple songs that utilize them. For more experienced students I will present some chords and scales and determine what level they are on and take it from there. Once my students have a grasp on some chords and scales I like to have them take turns soloing while the other plays rhythm. This helps to build improvisation skills and apply scales to chords. I always like to teach the student what they are interested in and stick to that style.

I began teaching back in 2001. Mostly to friends and friends of friends which later inspired me to pursue owning a business. I have always loved to teach and interact with all levels of musicians. I have 2yrs of college level Classical guitar performance and study. I also have two years of study with a college Jazz Ensemble. I was an everyday Rock n roller before College and still love to jam on some new or classic rock. My experience with these two very different styles of music has helped me to become a  better teacher and musician.

I am passionate about music and its ability to change the lives of its players and listeners, and I aim to inspire this passion in my students by creating a positive, welcoming environment where students feel comfortable to ask questions and make mistakes, and are encouraged to push themselves to be the best players and writers they can be. I work with my students to help them reach their own goals as musicians, and act as a friendly, encouraging support system to aid them in their learning process. After a few months of lessons with me, students can expect to have a clear goal in mind about their music, specific weekly assignments to help them improve in their proficiency of their instrument, and most importantly, a more confident sense of self in their musicianship.

I’ve been playing Guitar and Singing since I was 9 years old.  Almost all of this was self-taught until I attended Columbia for Music theory and Composition after high school.  There, I was ranked the top rated guitarist on fret-board jury for two semesters in a row, I was an examplary student and began my journey towards becoming and an accomplished pianist.  Starting at the age of 12, I founded my first band and have played in a variety of original and cover bands ever since.   Included in these experiences was Chicagoland regular rotation play on XRT's local music showcase and an interview on the Flabby Hoffman Show.  While attending UIC I even dabbled in theatre, and though I I had little to no experiece as an actor, I achieved a lead role in three out of the four productions I was cast in.  Of these four, two were rock musicals, including the Who's "Tommy."  As you can see, my whole life is music.  I love to teach, perform and compose music.  Although I love all these elements of music, I would have to say that my greatest joy comes from seeing my students progress towards becoming accomplished musicians.  Whatever your goals may be, I take great pride in helping you attain them.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
