I value students' success, tutoring music, math, english, & more.

My mother began teaching me guitar basics, such as strum patterns, when I was in elementary school. Though I focused more on voice, violin, and piano until college, I began receiving one-on-one lessons in 2009 and was quickly able to begin performing with guitar in a singer-songwriter style. I have since expanded my skills and taught students basics such as posture, chord structures, scales, reading tabs and sheet music, rhythm, various strum and finger-picking patterns, and more. I love helping students to develop their skills and knowledge of this instrument while working on learning so [more]

The Art of Language and the Language of Art

Beginning at age 13 and continuing to the present day, I have explored the power of my own self-expression through musical performance. From chords, to scales, to modes, I enjoy the process of working with my students to help them discover the power and joy of playing guitar. As a self-taught musician, I don't encourage sight-reading or advocate for classical guitar playing, but focus instead on practical skills in the blues, rock, and folk idioms. Whether you're a public performer, or just a home hobbyist, if you're looking for tips to improve your playing, I hope to help you unleash your [more]

I have a master's degree in classical guitar performance and have been playing for 12 years. I am currently on faculty at West Valley College. When I am not teaching there I can be found playing at events and weddings as well as teaching students from my studio at home. I have been teaching music for the past five or so years. Teaching music has been my passion in life. What I love most about it is getting to work with students one on one. Through the time of our lessons I get to learn how they think and what is the most effective ways they learn. Then I try to match their learning... [more]
