    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    I love to share my passion for music with others. I believe music to be many things to us but it is an exploration process where we can learn about ourselves and the world.

    My Teaching Background
    I have been actively playing and learning guitar for about 10 years. I graduated from Trinity Lutheran College with a Bachelors of Arts in Music under the mentorship of great faculty with diverse teaching styles. I am currently the music director at Pathways Church in Mill Creek as well as two chapels in the University District.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    The teaching approach I learned from my mentors, who have taught lessons to students of all age groups, is to put the student above the curriculum. As a music teacher I am not rying to teach a curriculum; I am sharing the love of music through discovery and acquiring skills. This means each student's learning style, interests, and who they are will uniquely shape the curriculum. Nonetheless, for all my students I hope each is challenged to become a better musician and hopefully a better person because of the skills, techniques, and concepts learned through taking lessons in music striving for excellence.

    Rates And Availability
    I teach out of my home in Marysville. Depending upon circumstance I would be willing to come to a student's home to teach. My rates are charged monthly at $140 for four 30 minute lessons or at $240 for four 60 minute lessons.
