I specialize in teaching the styles of metal, jazz, classical, and rock on various instruments, as well as a bit of flamenco guitar. I also work with students on the fine points of music theory and composition. I believe in lesson structures that allow my students to foster their creativity. Music is an expression of one’s soul, and I find it of paramount importance for a student to learn their instrument in a way that allows their unique style to flourish.

In our lessons, we shall study the musicians that inspire you. From there, we shall pick apart their techniques and make them our own. Whether it be jamming, performing in concert, or simply telling campfire stories, we will work the aspects of music that intrigue you most. I teach beginners and experts alike, and am LGBTQ+ friendly.
