Teaching Style:           

      I enjoy guiding students as they develop the tools to play their instrument. My teaching philosophy is to meet the student where they are, in order to meet each individual students needs and development. I believe in the value of fostering a supportive learning environment in which I model clear, sensitive, and constructive communication. 

Lesson Information:

  • FIDDLE: I teach traditional fiddle styles (mostly oldtime, some french canadian, tex-mex, irish, klezmer, and cape breton styles) with an emphasis on technique.

  • GUITAR: I teach oldtime guitar, surf guitar, guitar parts + songs, old country guitar, and more

  • BANJO: I teach clawhammer style (oldtime tune melodies).

  • UKE: This is a good option for young kids who are interested in learning guitar. I teach chords + songs, simple melodies and strumming patterns.

  • I host regular oldtime jams for my students.
