Within a framework of six tenets - autonomy, community, creativity, play, recognized success, and relatedness, it's my goal to teach my students exactly what they need to know to achieve their musical goals. Everyone has a unique goal, so I use a student-based approach and develop a unique curriculum for each musician.
I'm a licensed public school music teacher in the state of Massachusetts and a Suzuki-registered guitar instructor specializing in classical guitar, rock, folk, and pop, with students ranging in age from 4 years old to adult. I've taught hundreds of students guitar for over 20 years.
I taught for over 7 years at the Uconn Community Music School for the Arts and for 14 years before that privately and at various other schools. I'm currently on hiatus from studio teaching while I finish graduate work in education at the University of Massachusetts.
