Performing and Teaching Guitar in the Boston Area since 2005
I have been a professional guitarist for 23 years and have been teaching the instrument for over 18 years. I graduated from Berklee College of Music on a Music Performance based Scholarship. I teach beneficial, practical, and fun musical techniques for the guitar. My primary focus is setting students off on the right foot and helping them stay on track with their goals.
I love to teach and see students grow on their instrument. I zero in on each students learning style and teach to best accommodate it. Proudly, I have guided students from a small foundation in music to earning scholarship awards in various music programs and schools including Berklee, NEC, NYU, USC, U of A
