I am a full time local musician; I’ve been performing and teaching music in Austin for over ten years. I first began giving lessons while working on a degree in music theory. Since I graduated, I have played in several bands; I’ve gigged all around Austin, and even traveled to Seattle, Nashville, and Waikiki to play shows and record albums. I’ve performed on TV and radio stations including Austin’s own KGSR and Fox 7’s Good Day Austin. My primary focus and interest is in teaching. As a performer who plays and teaches a lot of instruments, (piano, drums, guitar, bass, ukulele, and others) I believe I have found an innovative and highly effective approach to teaching music. This incorporates what I learned in school as well as on stage and in the studio. I want my students to realize and achieve their full potential as musical artists, and there are few things I enjoy more than helping them achieve their personal goals.
