I've taught in the past at Hollywood Music Academy and have been featured for my artistic work on CNN, ABC’s Vista L.A., LA WEEKLY, OC WEEKLY and popular radio outlets like NPR. I have taught privately for 9 years and developed an approach that explains the complexity of these instruments/skills in a simple manner that helps students grasp the concepts and begin playing immediately.
