About Me:


I teach all levels and all styles of guitar, piano, bass, and music theory.  My studio is located in Austin, TX (South Austin) at Red Leaf School of Music (4800 S 1st St, 78745).


I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I played in the 1st jazz band (guitar), 1st jazz combo (piano), classical guitar quartet, and an original rock band (guitar and vocals). In addition to teaching, my professional experience includes working as a musical director for Second City Theatricals (the renowned comedy theater based in Chicago), recording and touring with Wind-Up recording artists Company of Thieves (keyboards), and playing guitar onboard cruise ships.


I am very interested in physical and mental health (specifically yoga and meditation), and how these relate to making music. I believe that while music theory and technique are important, they can also be a hindrance if they prevent you from exploring and playing without tension and fear. As a teacher, I am passionate about helping you to develop your own musical voice, while making sure that you enjoy the process. I hope to have an opportunity to work with you or your family in the near future!
