My Mission

Enjoy Learning To Play

I believe that to be able to learn anything well, you need to enjoy what you are learning. I like to make sure my lessons are both enjoyable and informative for all.

Together, we will learn in a direction that you want to learn in. We can learn the music that you like to listen to in your spare time as well as learning all of the essential theory.
