I am both a seasoned teacher and professional performer.
I have taught acoustic, electric, bass guitar, and ukulele for over 20 years to students of all ages.
I have prepared students for NYSSMA as well as auditions and prep for various ensembles (Jazz band, Grammy in the Schools, School of Rock, College Auditions).
I craft and lead music groups at several schools and design and implement innovative musical workshops for large corporations. Styles include rock, jazz, classical, blues, fingerpicking and more.
My approach to teaching includes seeing where each student is intellectually, musically, and emotionally, then working from there. I like watching people grow, see their creative lights get turned on, and reach their goals.
