I thoroughly enjoy sharing my musical knowledge and experiences with my students. Within my lessons, I strive to create a learning environment that is fun and positive but also pushes students to grow as musicians and develop their craft.
I have been teaching music since 2012. My approach is to provide students with important foundational elements and practical techniques within the context of learning and writing music that they have a passion for.
I am an award-winning composer and multi-instrumentalist. I have had my music broadcast worldwide on T.V., collaborated with members of the legendary hip-hop group, Wu-Tang Clan, and toured the United States as a performer.
An original song that I co-wrote was selected as a Semi-Finalist in the 2015 International Songwriting Competition. I also gained international attention in 2014 when, along with vocalist and collaborator Aria Pullman Ostrander, I won the beIN the Beat competition, and was flown to Miami to record at the legendary Hit Factory Criteria studio. This live recording was broadcast during the Real Madrid vs. FC Barcelona soccer game.
My music has received radio play on KCSN (88.5 FM) and The Independent FM. And my achievements have been profiled in Voyage LA Magazine, Buzzbands.LA, The Deli Magazine, Arena Music, Care2Rock, Skillshare, and WeHeartMusic.
