Welcome to my private teaching studio !
I look forward to giving your child a life-long love of music!
I’ve been playing guitar and ukulele for more than 30 years, which translates into knowing 1000’s of songs in different genres: classical, pop, rock, folk, blues, and country.
What sets me apart is that I am a teacher first and foremost. I smile everyday, knowing that I get to teach budding ukulele players and guitarists. And, hundreds of them have walked through my teaching studio door! I love watching kids gain motivation and confidence through systems and techniques that get results. I welcome students of all ages, and specialize in teaching children and teens.
Your child will receive:
- Customized lessons that match individual learning styles
- Skills advanced through music your child enjoys
- Music notation and theory
- Preparation for performance – cheering on the child who loves the spotlight and gently encouraging the child who has stage anxiety
Communicating with you, the parent, is my top priority. You will be provided with regular updates and encouraged to contact me with questions.
I look forward to hearing from you!
