- I have taught guitar privately, in ensembles and as adjunct faculty for the past 15 years. I have also taught electric bass, composition, music production, theory and beginning keyboard. Furthermore, I have given workshops and clinics across the United States in colleges and high schools and have performed on 4 continents across dozens of countries. My students have been all ages from all levels from beginning to advanced. Music is the most important aspect of my life and nothing brings me more joy and fulfillment than being able to share this with others.
