Working with Sam has been an absolute delight. I have been in some type of musical education for the majority of my life and only once before have I had someone with so much knowledge be so patient. Sam also has an innate talent for explaining concepts in music theory that I couldn't wrap my head around for decades. But best of all, he's fun to learn with and from. Take a lesson with Sam. You won't be disappointedSep 17, 2019Verified
Music Theory Lessons
Sam is the man!!! Sam is my choice for piano and theory lessons for my son Hendrix(13yrs). My son can be somewhat critical of his instructor/guilds if they are not well versed in their craft, as well as, the skill of imparting the knowledge of that craft to him. Sam exceeds Hendrix’s and my expectations in both of these areas. He has a very warm personality and a sharp intelligence for music and ways to share his knowledge. So if that is what your looking for Sam is the man!!!💯Jun 13, 2019Verified
He understood exactly what I was having problems with and was able to teach me what was actually going on. He was a patient teacher and was always on time for every lesson. I learned a lot and it was a great learning experience overall.Feb 12, 2019

I've had a lot of talented guitar instructors who couldn't teach to save their lives. Sam has both guitar ability and teaching ability in spades!Feb 6, 2019

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Having tangible S.M.A.R.T goals is key with mastering an instrument. I help my students to develop weekly and monthly targets to strive for and break down larger goals into workable chunks.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor's in guitar performance and film scoring from Berklee College of Music where I graduated summa cum laude and worked as a core music tutor. I also instructed professionals of the LA film scoring industry who wanted to better their performance and arranging ability on the instrument.
