I currently teach at 2 fine music schools:

Phoenix Feather Academy of Music in Lake Forest, CA

Adam's Music Studio in Orange, CA


My teaching style involves finding a balance between serious study and fun.  My students learn to read music in all its forms, and also to write their own songs and improvise.  I give students the tools they need to bring out their innate musical creativity. 

Teaching is a great joy for me. I feel truly blessed to be able to share my passion for music with all my students!

I teach the following instruments:


Guitar (Classical, Acoustic, Electric, Bass)
Ukulele
Mandolin
Dobro
(lap steel)
Cello


Contact me!  I'd love to talk to you about music and help you along your path.
Whether you're just starting out, or have lots of experience, I can help you achieve your musical goals.
