- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Finding out your musical interests and using those interest to build a strong foundation. Together we will set short some term goals to get started and construct a plan to achieve them.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a masters degree in guitar performance and and working on finishing my doctorate in guitar performance as well. I have taught privately in my home, at local music stores, at music academies, and in higher education. I have also taught group classes, coached guitar ensembles, and have taught a music theory course. I’ve received teaching assistantships during my masters at the University of Louisiana and during my doctorate at ASU. I am also the guitar instructor at Grand Canyon University.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started teaching a high school algebra teacher in exchange for tutoring. Seeing him go from just starting to being able to play his favorite songs he had always wanted to lean was deeply rewarding. I’ve been teaching guitar ever since!
