I have been teaching adults and children for over 25 years how to enjoy music, in schools, universities, and in individual lessons. I run the guitar and fiddle program at the Suzuki Music Program of LA in the Valley, and I also teach vocal harmony singing at music camps in California. I have a MM in ethnomusicology, and I have a special place in my heart for international folk and classical genres of of all kinds.
I believe that learning to play music isn’t necessarily going to lead anyone into a life of performance. However, performance will give you experiences that will be useful throughout your life. I enjoy helping individuals find their voice through music. I encourage creative play in addition to developing accurate technique through practice. I perform regularly in several different outfits around LA and the country. Contact me directly, I'd love to hear from you!
