Teaching Guitar, Ukuleke and Songwriting.
Singer and multi-instumentalist for Private Functions, Weddings, Festivals and other venues.
I'm a lifetime professional singer/songwriter/guitarist with formal guitar/vocal training background. I regularly perform in festivals, schools, local and national venues. I've taught in schools and privately for over 25 years, facilitating songwriting, guitar and music workshops with all ages as well as special needs kids.
As a musician for your event I have a varied repertoire of popular songs, from Patsy Cline to Norah Jones, Frank Sinatra to Jason Mraz. I can learn any song, and have originals as well. I sing and play guitar, mandolin and ukulele and play most styles.
As a music teacher I can integrate any topic into the learning environment through music. My goal is to inspire and empower students to embrace their unique musical voice and utilize that in a healthy, positive way.
My specialty is accessing the appropriate personal approach for each student. As a guitar teacher, I assess your goals and needs--then taylor lessons to that. As a songwriting teacher, I have techniques to improve one's craft as well as help with editing, arrangements, and overall presentation of original works.
I'm a lot of fun, very silly and laid back. I believe in a hands-on approach to playing--with more focus on learning kinetically than reading.
I've recently added ukulele to my palate, and am excited to be offering UKE lessons now too!
