In Their Own Words

"There are a lot of basic elements of music that I want students to be able to translate to their instrument, no matter what style they end up playing. I focus a lot on the fundamentals (scales, arpeggios, technique, etc.), but also strategies for unlocking creativity and finding your voice as an improviser."

"My teaching is very much informed by all the knowledge I have acquired over the years through touring internationally, and being a part of countless recording sessions and numerous musical collaborations across different genres. All of these experiences, that have helped shape me into the musician I am today, allow me to better provide my students with real-world training and prepare then for entering into a career as a professional musician."
