Rutgers University (Jazz Guitar)
I am a guitarist/composer/vocalist with a BM from Mason Gross School of The Arts and have over 12 years of private and class teaching experience. Having a great rapport with children, I have an engaging and outgoing personality and also perform regularly for thousands of people.
Being a member of the National Association of Music Educators, I have been on the panel of multiple music competitions and auditions.
My teaching style is rooted in classical guitar, but I adhere my students' unique interests and abilities. Establishing essential musical skills such as reading and technique, I work with relatable musical material, such as songs from my students' playlist.
