I have Bachelor's Degree in Music with a year or graduate work, also in music. I'm an Emmy wining composers of film and concert music. I had ten years in the pop music business as a recording artist, singer, songwriter, producer and guitarist. I have taught at UCLA Extension, Los Angeles College of Music, New York Film school and other institutions as well as a great deal of private tutoring.

I'm very passionate about music and that seems to be contagious with my students. I'm good at inspiring them as I love to teach. Whatever your interest in music is, I will help to discover your unique ability to do it - to discover what you have to offer and to develop your ability to share it.
