Lessons

I have been teaching privately for over a decade now and have experience with students of all ages and levels. I design the lessons with your personal goals in mind! I specialize in classical music but I am comfortable teaching an array of other genres as well. My priority as a teacher is to get you set up technically, as well as proficient in music theory so that you can go all the places you want to go with your music!
