I started studying music at 5 years old on piano and went on to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Studies from the University of North Florida for jazz guitar. Since then, I added ukulele, banjo, and electric bass to my arsenal of instruments.
I was fortunate enough to perform on stage with Grammy-award-winning and nominated artists including Christian McBride, Randy Brecker, Maria Schneider, Danilo Perez, and Michael Phillip Mossman, Broadway stars including Anthony Rapp, Marin Mazzie, and Jarrod Spector, and open for the band, The Plain White Ts, on their recent West Coast tour.
My goal is to share the music education that I spent the past 20+ years learning and 12+ years teaching to a select group of dedicated students, so they can benefit from my experience as a teacher and professional musician, and not waste years of their time, money, and energy on a subpar music education.
I know that my music education played a major role in my success in school and helped me develop the necessary habits that led to being valedictorian of my high school class and getting accepted into top music schools and Ivy League colleges. Beyond the academic benefits, learning a musical instrument is FUN and is a skill that I can enjoy for the rest of my life because my parents enrolled me with top music instructors in my childhood and teenage years.
