I studied music at Bowdoin College, and received my Master's degree in Music Composition from Butler University. I have been playing the guitar for almost 14 years in a variety of styles, everything from rock, jazz and blues to classical and Latin music. I thoroughly enjoy playing music and sharing my enthusiasm with others, making sure to encourage creativity and adapt my lessons to each student's needs and interests.
In addition to playing music, I am also a huge fan of math, everything from pre-algebra up to pre-calculus. I love working out problems and finding solutions, and helping others understand all of the shortcuts and tricks involved.
The Spanish language is another big interest of mine, having studied it in high school and college. I also spent a semester living with a señora in Spain, which was absolutely amazing. It is a wonderful, diverse culture and an extremely useful language to be able to speak, read and write.
