ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:
.
Overview:
I’m a Kentucky native and Classical Guitarist currently residing in Cincinnati, Ohio. In addition to a wealth of teaching and performing experience, I have studied with many world renowned performers and teachers such as; Clare Callahan, Oscar Ghiglia, David Russell, Marcin Dylla, Zoran Dukic, Florian Larousse, Carlos Perez, Jason Vieaux, Lily Afshar, William Kanengiser, and Pavel Steidel. I hold a B.M. Performance from Eastern Kentucky University and completed my M.M. Performance at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. In the fall of 2013 I was chosen among a select few international students to study with Maestro, Oscar Ghiglia in the Incontri Chirarristici di Gargnano in Northern Italy. I began my concert career in 2013 and since has given concerts in Ohio, Kentucky, and Italy (as a soloist for the conclusion of the Incontri Chitarristici di Gargnano). Most recently I have given solo concerts at Eastern Kentucky University, Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, University of Pikeville, Eastern Kentucky University, and was featured on the Cincinnati Art Museum’s ‘Something Different’ concert series.

METHODS USED
I use various method books such as; Suzuki, Hal Leonard, Sagreras, Frederick Noad, Royal Conservatory, and many others. I pick a method which suits each students individual needs and goals.
LESSON STYLE
I’ve been teaching for over 12 years now and I enjoy it more now than ever. I love meeting new students because with each person comes a unique personality and learning style. I try to teach each student according to their respective proclivities while helping them to overcome their weaknesses as well. I try to create a fun environment to learn in, provide students with what they’re looking for, and also throw in some nice surprises along the way.  The eventual goal is to teach a student how to teach themselves. I’ve found if you mold a musician you’re making someone who’s interest in music will persevere, always taking a next step, and always finding more interesting and challenging questions.

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.
