Overview

It started with classical guitar lessons in 4th grade, but when I realized how fun it was to jam with other people, I started playing electric bass in a few different middle school rock bands, ultimately joining a group that toured the US starting the summer of my Junior year of high school.

At UC Berkeley I sang harmony with the Cal Jazz Choir and built my guitar chops with Mimi Fox and Jeff Massanari. I played guitar in a small jazz combo and wrote folk tunes between classes.

Teaching Philosophy

Music has been one of the most enriching elements of my life, and I love to share my passion and understanding. Music theory has helped me create a viable framework to dig even further into the music that I love. I've learned that all things musical have elements to be whole-heartedly appreciated. I’m a calm, patient person who understands that good things take time, but I'll help you to work smarter, not harder. I’m committed to maintaining a musical lifestyle, and I love to see how music can brighten a person's life.

Sam is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher who knows what he's doing and is very good at it. It was great working with him and he thought me a lot in the time I spent working with him.
