Overview:
I'm a guitar player, composer, and instructor currently based in North Los Angeles with a love for playing and teaching. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in the spring of 2017, where I studied electric and acoustic guitar and earned a BM in Composition & Production. Primarily a rock, blues, and funk player, I also have professional experience playing jazz, bluegrass, classical, fingerstyle, and more. Since graduating, I have had the opportunity to play alongside talented artists in Los Angeles, performing at venues such as the Wiltern, The Village Recorder, The Viper Room, and The Saban Theater.
EXPERIENCE
I started teaching while at college, where I taught private lessons part-time in between classes and on weekends. Since moving to Los Angeles, I have been teaching several students via Skype, as well as a contracted instructor through a couple of local music schools. I enjoy teaching students the things that inspire them the most to practice, whether it be a new guitar concept or even just learning a song they love! I have taught students of varying disciplines, from students who just wish to play for fun and leisure, to serious students who yearn for long term professional goals in music.
METHODS USED
My teaching methods are always tailored to each individual student. With that said, for beginning and/or younger students, I typically start with the fundamentals of the guitar and begin the initial development of dexterity by reinforcing the fundamentals through teaching songs that the student wishes to learn. As the student's ability progresses, I then start relating those primal concepts to the foundation of more advanced guitar concepts that soon give the student the freedom to play whatever they want, however they want. For adults and/or more advanced students, I start by gauging the students current level of ability, and blending it with any particular areas of the guitar the student is interested in developing. In effect, this keeps the lessons engaging and fun at all levels of playing ability!
LESSON STYLE
My goal is always to discover what it is that inspires the student to play and have a good time doing it, as this is the ultimate motivator for consistent practice and development. That is why I always start by asking the student first if there is anything they want or need to learn, and to work from there. I believe that the instructor should be the servant of the student, and it is my job to make sure that the student always leaves each lesson feeling motivated to continue their guitar adventures, and to come back each week with a yearning for more!

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.
