    About MeContact Me
    Greetings! I am currently offering beginner to intermediate guitar lessons, as well as beginning piano lessons. In addition to instrumental training, I also teach all the foundational skills of music composition and songwriting, including theory, ear training, arranging, and lyric writing. Guiding my students on their musical journey is something I'm very passionate about, and I am committed to giving every student the very best musical training possible in a manner that is supportive and creatively engaging.

    I have a Bachelor's of Music in Classical Composition from Cornish College of the Arts and have been writing original music for over fifteen years. I have been playing the piano and guitar for over twenty years. My classical works have been performed by a number of renowned ensembles including St. Helens String Quartet, Pacific Rims Percussion Quartet, and Seattle Chamber Brass Quintet. I also have performed in a number of rock bands in Seattle since 2006.

    My current availability for lessons is weekday evenings and weekend afternoons and evenings. I teach out of Capitol Music Center in the University District and out of a community performance space in the Central District. I can also come to the student's residence if in the Seattle metro area for a small nominal fee. My normal rate is $40/hour, but a group of four prepaid lessons can be purchased for $140 (which must be used in a 5-week period.)

    If you would like more information about my work as a composer and music instructor, including sound samples of my work, please visit my website at:

    I look forward to hearing from you!
