About Me:
I am a musician/educator who has been active in New York City for the last 5 1/2 years. My primary performing instrument is guitar but I have a substantial amount of practical experience with piano and drumset. As a performer I have experience ranging from Jazz to Classical, fully notated contemporary music to fully improvised music, and everything in between. As an educator I have maintained a passion for crafting unique lesson plans suiting the needs of each individual student while incorporating the same important information into all lessons.
