Overview

I'm originally from Florida, where as a teenager, I discovered the music of Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and many other classic rock bands of my parents' generation. From then on I couldn't fill my ears with enough music. Rock, folk, jazz, blues...I was hooked. By the time I got to college, I knew I wanted to follow my passion for music. I graduated from the University of South Florida and In 2008, I received a Masters degree from the Manhattan School of Music. I've been teaching music for 10 years now.

Teaching Philosophy

In my experience I've found that learning an instrument is easiest when lessons are fun and positive. My teaching style is laid back. I try to learn the styles of music students are interested in learning and go from there. I try to understand the way each student learns. Some are visually oriented, some audible, etc. Most importantly, is that I like to maintain a pressure free environment, while showing students the joy of discovering music, and the craft playing it. 3 E's of Enthusiasm, Empathy, Encouragement.
