Structured units are designed to get beginners playing fun songs early, while learning the fundamentals of music. For intermediate and advanced players I offer deeper dives on style, technique, and theory

I have been lucky to work with a few fantastic music schools including Rhodes School of Music where I have seen an average of over twenty students per week, the Young Musicians Foundation where I taught guitar classes to underserved youth in Los Angeles, and the California Institute of the Arts where I tutored music theory students at the college level.

Through the years I have studied privately with world renowned guitarists including Larry Koonse, Miroslav Tadic, John Moulder, Adam Del Monte, Steve Trovato, and Pat Kelley. I have completed over thirty credits towards my MFA in Composition at California Institute of the Arts.
