Guitar is my life! I started playing 16 years ago because of a childhood obsession with rock n' roll and heavy metal. After a whole lot of guitar school, I progressed to love all types of guitar and my main focus is now classical, acoustic, and finger-style music. I have 3 degrees in classical guitar performance: BM from FSU, MM from Juilliard, and a Doctorate from USC. There are few things in this world I enjoy more than sharing my knowledge of the guit-fiddle with those that want to learn.
I have 7 years of experience teaching students from ages 5-60 in private lessons, teaching in class and ensemble settings, and through teaching artist workshops. I teach a lot of children and get along with them famously. Some of my students have been accepted into The Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute of Music, the Aspen Music Festival and School, and the Florida State University.
