    About MeContact Me
    I'm a full time musician, session player, and songwriter living in the Detroit area. I play lead guitar for a touring funk, rock and soul band The Infatuations ( who received 5 Detroit Music awards in 2014, and 2 more in 2015. I also own a music licensing and custom composition company called JIVA Music, LLC ( We have music featured on various TV shows and films including Fox Sports, Dance Moms, Mob Wives on VH1, Made on MTV, Girlfriends Guide to Divorce on Bravo, 16 and pregnant and many others. I also do session work and play on various artists albums, so I have years of songwriting and studio recording experience as well that I can share with my students.

    My Teaching Background
    I have a degree from Michigan State University and have been teaching guitar privately for over 10 years. I currently teach over 20 students per week in both Canton and Livonia. I have been studying and performing music my entire life focusing on guitar. I also have several students that would be happy to speak to you as a reference for me.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I teach the fundamental concepts and techniques of music in a clear and concise manor. I teach all styles of guitar playing (Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country, Folk, Classical). I also play by ear, so I'm able to teach my students the songs THEY want to learn (just bring a CD or your ipod with you to lessons). I teach a balanced mix of music theory, technique, songs, and most importantly I make sure its fun for my students.

    I teach at the following locations;
