About Me:
Music manifests itself in whatever we choose to do in life. I love teaching because I am not only able to pass along the love of what I do, but also learn from my students. I believe the lesson format to be an open door, where a student can come to share insights, and in doing so soak in what I am able to give a professional. Learning music does not need to be an aggravating experience, on the contrary, it should be based upon simple yet stern goals. I truly believe that through working in small increments, a student can truly realize their dreams in a fruitful, enriching manner. My journey began on saxophone, and now, is mainly realized as a guitarist and producer. Thus far it has brought me all over the U.S, Cuba, and Spain, playing in stadiums and living rooms alike, in the styles of jazz, rock, latin, reggae, americana, and flamenco. I enjoy teaching students of all levels, beginners, hobbyists, and advanced players. Whatever your musical interests or aspirations may be, I would love to help you find your unique path to playing/continuing to play the music which moves you.
