I have over 25 years’ experience with professional composing in corporate, television and film. Currently I am a student at California State University Dominguez Hills. Next spring I will graduate with a BA in music composition. I’m also the music director at Christ Chapel in Long Beach, CA. Working in the studio as a producer, engineer, pianist, vocalist or composing and arranging has developed my communication and business skills. I offer academic knowledge as well as practical hands-on experience. My resume and college grades are available upon request.

Teaching and tutoring is a natural extension of my life experience and work. Sharing the knowledge and passion I have for music comes naturally. Over the years I’ve amassed a great deal of academic knowledge that I have put to practical use in the field. I first attended Texas Texas Tech University while working in various studios. My studio work resulted in my moving to Southern California in 1990. Since I’ve moved here my professional work and resume has increased and I decided to return to college to finish my BA in music composition.

I specialize in music composition, music theory and digital studio technology. I am experienced with Pro Tools as well as many other audio software programs such as Logic Pro, SAW, iZoptope, RX3 and various other audio programs and plug in’s.

Whether academically, in the studio or performing live, I hold myself to a high standard. I am flexible with time, and while I do have a 24hr cancellation policy, I do offer makeup classes.

I look forward to hearing from you, sharing our passion for music, and helping you achieve your goals.

Composition (Music)

I am currently completing my BA in music composition at Cal State University Dominguez Hills, CA. I have over 20 years’ experience in studio engineering, producing and composing. I have completed all levels of undergrad music theory. A solid foundation in music theory helps musicians, composers, vocalists and even sound engineers to better understand and formulate how music is structured. Over the years I've performed engineering and production work for numerous corporate, television and film clients, as well as foley and sound design for gaming. I can advise on the use of digital media, hardware and software. I use Logic Pro to compose and can provide expertise in its use and functions. My resume and work samples are available upon request.
