While performing live is always rewarding, sharing the joy that music can bring to one’s life is the ultimate reward. I try to bridge the gap between discipline and good old fun. It is always important to me that students enjoy how and what they learn. I have years of playing and performing experience and have been exposed to many different styles of music throughout my career. While guitar is my primary instrument, I feel I could also be especially helpful to students that are interested in composing and perhaps any aspiring singer/songwriters.
