Originally from Croton On Hudson, NY, I am a lover of all the aspects of music! I was the Valedictorian of the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in 2013, and I also attended Manhattan School of Music for two years prior.

Instruments:

I have been a musician for most of my life and I've learned a lot.  After college, I moved to LA and had a successful 20+ year career as a composer and music editor for film and tv.  Commercial writing gives you another way to study and learn music as you are asked to write whatever style the production needs.  I took each opportunity to explore a new style, a new instrument, and new technology.  I also played all of the instruments on the music I wrote.  I now live in New York and write my own music, but once in a while I still get a call to write for a Hollywood production.

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.
