Overview:

I’m a composer and musician, and I love learning and teaching how music works. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego in 2018 with a Bachelors in Music composition and have been making and teaching music ever since. I started guitar and drum lessons when I was ten years old, motivated by the joy of rocking out and expanded to classical instruction in highschool. I love to bring that rock-out spirit to my classical experiences and incorporate classical strategy and awareness to my popular musical expressions.

EXPERIENCE

I began giving private guitar instruction towards the end of my college studies, and after graduation taught group and private lessons at a music school. At that school I taught a vast range of ages, skill levels, and instruments, from 4 year old beginners, to teenage experts, to adults who needed a brush-up. I learned the wondrous potential of motivated students with supportive parents as well as the futility of forcing an instrument or a style on a student that actually wanted to explore something else. I love being a part of that exploration process and finding a music language that inspires you.

METHODS USED

My goal in teaching is quite simply to help you with your goal in learning. If you want to expand your pop music skills to help with your songwriting, production, or church music endeavors, I got you. If you want to win a piano competition or ace your university music audition, let’s get you there. If you just want to have fun and experience the joy of playing your favorite tunes or jamming with friends, then relax, learning is fun and rewarding. My strategy generally is to focus on fundamentals as well as effective strategies for practicing at home. I have found that most improvement happens at home in your living room on your 3rd or 4th practice session of the week, which is one of the most fulfilling feelings in the world. Lessons then become a pit stop for encouragement, updating goals and strategies, and learning a little of the “why” behind the “what” (music theory).

LESSON STYLE

I am adaptable to what interests and clicks with you as a musician, so if you want to dive deep into music theory, including music notation, harmony, advanced rhythms, awesome. If you would rather learn by ear and reading basic chord charts and lead sheets, no problem. Regardless, I like to start with establishing good form and a basic understanding of musical terms. From there, we’ll look at the music that inspires you and craft a strategy to increase your comfort and proficiency in that area. If it’s more formal classical piano or guitar training, we will likely work through some song and theory books at the appropriate skill level. For more popular styles, we’ll probably pick some songs together, analyze them, and dive into learning them from the ground up.

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.
