I have been teaching since 2001, when I started to build my student roster, taught an internship at my conservatory, and also held a position at a local community music center.  I presently have a music studio with a full roster. I am commited to fostering a supportive environment in which disciplined is achieved through a natural process.  I help students reach their goals by giving them all of the tools that they need to understand the music, sharing my own techniques, encouraging regular practice-time, and keeping the excitement of music-making alive by always giving classes a fun spin.

I am a very motivated instructor who loves giving musical instruction to anyone that is excited about music.  I love teaching and talking about all different genres of music and learning about other people's influences and musical experiences.  I graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2012 and have been teaching guitar lessons in the East Bay area since moving back.  I've been fortunate enough to study with some world class musicians and to perform with professional bands since I was 16 years old. Whether you want to dig into learning the history of the blues or you want to get starting on learning some jazz standards or even just picking up some Metallica riffs/solos, I can get you started from whichever starting point you choose.  From there I always make sure to assess a student's needs and tastes, then try to apply music theory along with nudging the student into new musical territory.  I believe that any student is capable of learning any type of music with the right attitude and carefully guided instruction.   Also if a student wants to develop his or her ear training on the guitar, I can help unlock the secrets to developing relative or even perfect pitch.  Since the ear is perhaps the most important factor to anyone's musicianship, this will be an immense help to any student. Most importantly, my goal is to have fun and to share my love for music with anyone who is willing to learn and listen!

Beginning students will learn the basic major scales, then minor scales. They will learn songs applying to the "scale of study," for that day, with the student's input as well. Once an understanding of chords has developed, we will experiment with changing the bass note in the chord, and play with how it effects the sound of the whole chord. Playing with friends and/or recordings of your favorite songs is recommended highly! Have fun! Play what you like! :) Reading material will be xeroxes from the following books: Learn to Read Music Tonal Harmony F. Simandl's New Method for Double Bass

I was educated from age 7 in Clarinet, reaching the highest award offered by The Associated Board of the Royal School of Music at age 12. I was graded A* for my school music exam (GCSE) a year early, and also gained and A Grade in my college (A Level). Seeking to go to music college I then took ABRSM Grade 6 piano. I played in the Birmingham Schools Wind Orchestra (Principal Clarinet) and the Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra (1st Alto Saxophone). I then went to University and studied for a bachelor degree in Music and Performing Arts.

I believe the methodology shifts depending on the student. I do have a sets of Guitar exercises and a simple method to explain theory that helps students from all levels.   I always combine the technical exercises and theory, with some song that's appropriate for the student level. I always to choose something that the student likes to hear. It truly helps, especially students that are beginners, to feel motivated.  The focus is always to make it fun for those that are starting, so they can find their passion for it. And for the advanced students, the goal is to help them to reach their maximum potential.

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.
