About Me:
I have been playing guitar since I was 13. I was inspired by the big sound that guitars gave to the music I listened to on the radio, and ever since then I have sought to learn, listen to, and explore everything I can about the instrument. I studied Classical Guitar for a year at Illinois State University and then switched over to Rock/Fusion at Columbia College Chicago. There I graduated with honors and was awarded with several scholarships. I participated in master classes with James Brown's horn arranger, Fred Wesley, funk master Ivan Neville, and even made an arrangement selected to be performed by Grammy Award winning artist Joan Osborne at her residency with the school. I primarily worked on rock and jazz based fusion guitar skills, studying with Harry Hmura. Post college I picked up more acoustic guitar songs, honing a unique fingerstyle approach. As a guitarist I enjoy playing a variety of styles and am capable of teaching all of them.

Experience:

  • Class instructor for Intonation Music Workshop. Working with kids in low-income neighborhoods to form stronger life skills by having them play in their own rock bands. We take kids with no musical experience and teach them to play drums, vocals, guitars, basses, and keyboards. We get the students to learn their favourite cover songs and eventually encourage them to write their own material as their individual and group musical identities are discovered and fostered.
