Overview:
I'm a classical guitarist from San Diego, and I love teaching the guitar as much as I love playing it. I have my Bachelor of Music in Classical Guitar Performance from California State University Northridge where I studied with John Dearman, a founding member of the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. In school I was chosen by faculty to play with the CSUN Honorary Guitar Quartet. We were invited to perform at the regional symposium for the Guitar Foundation of America. I also served as President of the CSUN Classical Guitar Club. As president, I booked concerts with world renowned guitarists, and held weekly meetings to welcome anyone interested in the guitar.
EXPERIENCE
I started teaching the guitar shortly after high school. The first lessons I taught were through the music studio where I first learned to play the guitar. I've taught both group and private lessons, and have experience with students of all ages. I love to find music that my students are excited about, and I feel that music should be about fun and dedication. I'm all about playing with other musicians, so make it a point to find music that I can play with my students. In my experience the most important part of learning music is being excited to play.
METHODS USED
I'm a firm believer in reading music, no matter what style of guitar you want to play. As someone who didn't grow up with music, the thought of reading music seemed like a huge hurdle. However, I discovered that it was easier than I thought and being able to read music helped me to understand larger concepts down the road. I also know that most students start playing the guitar because they want to learn their favorite songs, and I make sure to never ignore what my students want to play. Since I know that each student's progress is unique, I make custom lesson plans for every student based on what they want to learn.
LESSON STYLE
My goal is to help my students discover their potential. I've heard a lot of people say that they wish they could play an instrument, and I believe that anyone is capable of learning. I hope to inspire students to practice outside of lessons, and play for friends and family as much as possible. I love when my students find music on their own that they want to play. I believe that part of my job as a teacher is help my students discover their passion for the guitar. In addition to learning, I believe that lessons should be about discovering new possibilities.

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.
