Personal Statement

Music Lessons for the Complete and Creative Musician:

I am a recent graduate of Oberlin College and The Oberlin Conservatory of Music currently teaching weekly lessons in a variety of instruments for beginning through advanced students in the greater Los Angeles metro area. I have been teaching classes and one-on-one lessons for over 8 years, and have been performing and studying music for over 15 years. For more information about my personal musical resume and experience please click here.


I intend to provide my students with the building blocks from which to perform, record and compose in a variety of musical contexts. From the fundamental techniques of physically playing to advanced theoretical analysis, I aim to prepare musicians for a career in music encompassing music theory, reading skills, and important improvisational techniques that traditional teachers often skip over. I have studied and performed professionally in a multitude of styles ranging from Modern Jazz to R&B, Rock, Folk, Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, Pop and more. My versitility allows me to taylor my lessons to the musical interests of my students so they get the most out of their lessons.

To inquire about lesson times/set up a sample lesson please email me here or contact me by phone at 510 229 9845. I am also happy to provide references if requested.
