Some Background

Over the past 10 years, teaching has become a passion of mine. When I first picked up the guitar at 13, all I want to do was play. I was and still am fascinated by the the guitar. The shape, the frets, the strings, and the sound were all I thought about. When I first began teaching 10 years later, it was for practical purposes. I needed a job that I somewhat enjoyed. I have come to the opinion that a musical education is a vital part of a liberal education. Every day I teach I see my students growing and maturing as people and it is humbling to watch. I am always excited to teach and more excited to learn from my students.

My lessons

My lessons tend to be highly individualistic. I have and continue to teach a variety of styles, I do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ model. I will teach any age and any skill level, so long as the student is willing to learn. I currently teach lessons as a faculty member at Grand Valley State University, Grand Rapids Community College,Triumph Music Academy, and privately.
