Guitar & Piano Instruction for All Ages [In-Home & Skype]

Over the past 5 years, I've been voted into Thumbtack's Top 5 Music Instructors in San Diego County and have helped students get prepared, auditioned and accepted to Berklee College of Music as well as UC schools.

Whether you're 5 years old and learning the musical alphabet, or 65 years young - dusting off our modal soloing techniques and newly acquired drop-2 voicings - I love seeing that light bulb come on as we work through concepts, songs and musical traditions that we love.  

Contact me below for more information, availability and rates!

I book out by the month for in-home lessons. I'm restricted to the San Diego County area. Skype/Facetime video lessons are also available (and popular!) to non San Diego residents.
