Overview

I have been playing the guitar since 1984. I began with an electric, emulating my heroes like Jimmy Page, Randy Rhodes, and Yngwie Malmsteen. After a few years I developed an incurable dependency on the technical challenges of Classical and Flamenco. I perform regularly with a violinist, but the highlight of my career so far, was in October, 2013 when I was the featured soloist with the Santa Monica Symphony performing Joaquin Rodrigo's "Concierto de Aranjuez". I have taught many students and hold a Bachelors from UCLA.

Teaching Philosophy

I believe it is important to have a well rounded musical education. With my students I like to begin with a song of their choice and not only teach them to play, but also break it down to the basic fundamentals so the student will also learn the scales and keys the song is based around. Add to that, ear training and lyric technique at a comfortable pace, so buy the time you have learned 8 or 10 songs you'll be competent in both performing and songwriting.
