Personal Statement
I have played guitar since age 10. Played in dozens of bands, on hundreds of stages, for thousands of people. There is nothing in the world that I would rather do than play music. My goal is to instill that same love of music in my students. By teaching music theory & tehcnique with a tandem lesson in history and musicology, I produce students that not only know how to play music but why to play it.
