Teaching is my passion
I have over 15 years experience in both private and after school lesson programs, with a proven ability to introduce music and musical concepts to students of all ages, skill levels and interests. I enjoy building a gratifying and productive relationship with all of my students.
My lessons are tailored to meet each student's specific goals; because I know that everyone has their own.
I'm also always happy to provide material and lesson plans designed to get the student playing better and better! There's so many different ways to learn and I like to figure out what works best for each student. A lot of the time we can accomplish 2 things in 1
by learning a favorite song we can discuss things like basic to advanced technique, theory, sight reading etc all the while learning a new song!
I also offer lessons in songwriting, production/home recording,
and so much more.
I moved to NYC in 2011 with a BA in Music Performance from SUNY Oneonta and have been active in recording, performing (including several international tours) teaching and producing music professionally ever since.
Through following my interests and learning a wide range of musical skill sets
I'm always able to connect with students on whatever is is they want to accomplish.
