    About MeContact Me

    I can bring virtually any beginner or groups of beginners to a place of performance. I can help a player solve the mysteries of music theory by teaching from a players perspective. I love teaching beginners for the ease of grasping new ideas, and more experienced players for the unlocking of the mysteries and movement of music theory.

    My Teaching Background

    With college theory and performance, 100s of bandstand hours logged, and a life long mentor of my own, I have enabled many others to successfully achieving their dreams and goals.

    I have led groups of kids in rock-band camp sessions to work together toward performance.

    My Teaching Philosophy

    I combine instrument work with theory. I listen to your interests and abilities,and co-create with you a vision for your musical future: If you can see it, you can be it.
    From my experience, I can give you the ins-and-outs of working with a band, or how to solo gig.

    For the child or adult wanting to learn how to write songs, or for someone who has always dreamed of performing, I can take you from novice to professional.

    Are you already playing, but have question about 'those jazz chords', or 'what's up with those flat keys?' I can teach you how to play in ANY key with ease and confidence.

    Do you know a group of kids that want to put a band together, or sign up for our next band camp?

    Group Guitar Goddess-of-Swing lessons on Wednesdays: Get together with other Goddesses to learn new tunes and chord systems for playing in all keys with ease. Learn how to transpose a chart into your own key, and how to count off your tunes correctly for the band. Empower yourself (all levels and ages welcome).
