Bio

Hello there,
I have taught music privately for 21 years now. I have been a professional producer, composer, performer and studio musician for about 16 years. I truly enjoy the teaching experience and relationships with all my current (and past) students.

Hello there,
I have taught music privately for 21 years now. I have been a professional producer, composer, performer and studio musician for about 16 years. I truly enjoy the teaching experience and relationships with all my current (and past) students.
I have been a step ahead of most music teachers in the past because I am not just a teacher....I have a real career in the music industry. Although I can focus on the technical side of an instrument, I feel it is just as important to apply it to real life situations; primarily being able to play appropriately, and in time with other musicians. I am able to make it happen because of my ability to play, and understand multiple instruments; more importantly, how all the instruments work together.
Classic and modern rock is my specialty (Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Rolling Stones, Cream, The Who, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Nirvana, Guns N' Roses, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Metallica, Pantera, Pearl Jam, White Stripes, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Rush, Stone Temple Pilots, too long of a list to make really.......).
Look forward to meeting you!

Drums

I have BA in Music - University Of Southern California (Jazz Studies) 4 years drum set as my main instrument. In school I studied with Steve Houghton, Ndugu Chancelor, and Greg Field. I drummed professionally for 5 years with Dwight Kennedy and all his bands. Weddings, casuals, theme parks, and private corporate events. Many styles of music...big band, jazz, Latin, rock, dixieland, R&B, blues, and anything else you can think of. Now, I mainly do session work on the drums.
Guitar,

Guitar

I have been a professional Guitar Teacher 14 years (all private clients). I learned how to play the guitar at age 10. Since then I have been in too many professional groups to mention in this space. I play bass guitar every bit as well as well as a six string. As a guitar player, I make a living doing session work for PerfecTune Productions, Telepictures (Warner Bros.), Beacon St. Studios, Firehouse Studios and many more. I am obsessed with the guitar as an instrument. I also build guitars as a hobby.
