Music is a journey that everyone young and old can experience. Each person's journey looks just a little bit different. If there's anything I've learned as a teacher, it is that everyone learns at their own pace.
Students who study with me will venture down their own paths through music, with lessons catered to meet individual goals. Everyone has the ability to make music, and with the instruction I offer, students will experience the countless spiritual and emotional benefits that come with music-making.
I am a serious and passionate musician, dedicated to providing the best possible instruction and materials for my students. I wish for my students to become independent musicians through diligent and disciplined practice. Seeing things click for my students is the reason I love teaching. Music is inside all of us, and discovering it is a never ending journey with countless rewarding milestones along the way. Whether you are a beginner or experienced guitarist, whether you are young or old, I am thrilled to be joining you on your journey to a musically enriched life.
I began learning to play the guitar when I was 14. I quickly fell in love with the instrument, and dedicated all of my free time to practicing. It didn't take me long to realize that music and the guitar were going to be my main focus in life. I majored in Music Performance in college, completing my Associate's at SUNY Adirondack, my Bachelor's at SUNY Fredonia, and my Master's at Austin Peay State University. I now live in Nashville, and I divide my time between teaching and writing and recording music.

I offer a few lesson options. Students may enroll in weekly 30, 45, or 60 minute lessons. Lessons are booked on a month-to-month basis.
Lessons are taught with original and published materials that are adjusted to the needs of the individual. I provide my original books on music theory and fretboard harmony, as well as any updated versions to my students for free.
Due to COVID-19, I have shifted from only teaching locally to teaching internationally over Zoom.
For the foreseeable future, I intend to continue teaching this way since geography is no barrier.
