About MeI began writing songs at the age of 10. Shortly after I began playing guitar at the age of 13. I attended The Los Angeles Recording School after high school to learn to record the music I played. I have been in several bands from punk to country to Hip/ Hop. My passion is country music though. My influence is drawn from everywhere. From Led Zeppelin to George Straight.
One of my greatest joys in life comes from helping others. It is my utmost pleasure to help you succeed and grow as a musician in any and every way possible. I also understand what it is like to be a new musician and understand the learning process. My patience is never ending as I specialize in teaching 7-13 year olds. I'm willing to teach any style that is desired.
I also have multiple guitars, electric and acoustic, for those who want to learn but don't have a guitar yet.
My theory to teaching is to get you in the mix and learning your favorite songs as soon as the 2nd lesson. And as you progress, I work in the music theory so as not to bore you out of your mind in the beginning, as many of my students just want to learn songs and read tabs. During your first lesson, your goals will be discussed and a PERSONAL PLAN will be created for your likes. This, I believe, is the key to rapid progression.
