I began teaching piano in high school and continued into my college years. I then spent the next decade touring in bands and recording in some of the top studios in Los Angeles. I have worked with some of the best in the business including Rick Rubin, John Shanks, and Jason Falkner, just to name a few. These experiences have given me the knowledge of being a musician in the real world, which I try and impart to my students.

I was born in the town of Hebron, Ohio and graduated from a small rural high school. I first found my love for music with the help of my high school band director Mr. Scott Coffey, a graduate of Ohio University. From the 7th grade until high school graduation, I studied saxophone privately with Mr. Coffey, and held the highest position in the high school symphonic band. I was a part of many honor bands around Ohio including two years of Ohio University honor Band, two years of District Honor Band, and Capital University Honor Reading Band. I participated in marching band for all four years of high school and for two years at Ohio University with the Marching 110. In high school I arranged music for the marching band to play. After high school graduation in 2009 I attended Ohio University, studying Music Composition privately with Dr. Mark Phillips and Music Production at Ohio University Scripps College of Communication. I was a part of a variety of projects during my four years. One of the first major projects was being the music director for the musical “Rent” for the Los Flamingo Company, and I spent much of my time training vocalist and organizing the orchestra pit. With Dr. Mark Phillips and Professor Andre Gribou, a film composer, I began studying film music. I composed for countless films for the HTC Ohio University Program and for graduate student films, and also wrote the full score for an 88 minute film. The main focus of my music composing was in Midi composing and sample music, and while in college I maintained many sound libraries from Sweetwater Music and learned to perfect sample library composing. The study of Music Production came very easy for me and I enjoyed learning how to use many Digital Audio Workstation’s (DAW’s), as well as recording artists, finding talent, and learning the art of mastering albums. I had the opportunity to work at Ohio University School of Music as their sound engineer from 2009-2012, in charge of recording, mixing, and mastering the concerts for school records and educational use. Outside of working for the School of Music, I also got to record countless bands and watch professors recording artists professionally in the Radio Television Recording Studio.  As a recent graduate of Ohio University, I moved to Los Angeles California in pursuit of a film music and sound engineering career.

My teaching experience began 10 years ago when I taught flute lessons to students at the local middle school. However, when I was attending the Manhattan School of Music, I was a voice major so I really needed to focus on singing and I decided to only teach voice lessons after that. I studied with some of the most well-respected voice teachers of this generation, and they helped me to become not only a better singer, but also a better teacher. I find it so rewarding to watch my students succeed and become more confident performers. I believe that is my primary job as a teacher: to inspire singers to find their true voice and to give them the tools to sing in a healthy way.  I am currently on the voice faculty at MusA Academy and also maintain a private voice studio with students ranging in age from 6 - 73! I also work closely with professional actors who use their voice on a daily basis.

In my lessons I use snare drum method books such as Mitchell Peters Intermediate Book or Stick Control by George Stone to teach reading and basic hand technique.  Once I feel the student is proficient in reading and technique I move on to drumset coordination books as well as learning drum parts to the students favorite music.  I also teach techniques for xylophone, tympani and other classical percussion instruments.  I have an extensive library of music books and techniques so if one method doesn't work I have no problem customizing my lesson plan to fit the student's need.

For beginning piano students, I use the method books from Faber's Piano Adventures series. If the student gets bored with one method book, I will mostly likely top it off with something else from Alfred.  I stress mostly on counting proper rhythm, learning alphabets, and finger numbers for early age groups.  For intermediate students, I would expect students to already be able to read music aside from the rhythm challenges.  I will move on from where the student last left off from his/her former piano/voice teacher.  Aside from Faber and Alfred, I also have Bastien method books that I have taught from during my decade of piano teaching experience.  Of course, these aren't the only method books I have come to uncover.  As for voice, I have a set of vocal warm up scales from major and minor scales and patterns that my own former voice teacher has provided me.  I am very familiar with all the warm up techniques as well as breathing and how warming up techniques need to closely connect with the breathing.  Since I have performed in recitals and sung over the grand piano in a church, I will be able to guide beginning students at least with how to establish a certain type of singing voice.

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.
