I have been studying and performing music for twenty six years. I have been providing professional music education in the Portland-Vancouver area for over fifteen years. Before going independent, I taught at Beacocks Music Co in Vancouver, Washington for ten years. I have been working professionally on stage and in the recording studio for twenty years. Many of my former students have gone on to have great achievements. People I have educated have won full scholarships, become professional musicians, gotten involved in the music community, or just learned an instrument to their satisfaction.
I believe that everyone can play music! It is just a matter of finding the right approach. I assess the way an individual learns and then develop systems to achieve success.
After just a couple years of playing music, I began to teach my friends how to play. I seemed to have a knack for playing music and an inclination for helping others. I began learning on the saxophone in 5th grade at school. At the same time, I taught myself to play guitar. Within a few years, I was playing in bands and had added drums, bass, and piano to my repertoire. I started composing and recording music by the time I was twelve years old. When I completed high school, I went straight to the stage playing in working bands. In 2002 I moved to the Northwest and soon established myself as a professional musician and educator. Currently I am involved in music education, performance, live audio, songwriting, Performance, Music Technology, Engineering and Production.
