Hello everyone! My teaching career began in Chicago, Illinois, first teaching privately out of my home, then for the YMCA and other small music schools. I then began teaching private guitar lessons at Northwestern University while completing my masters degree there in classical guitar performance. After graduation I built a large student base at Sherwood at Columbia College Chicago.
I was born in Western Australia and commenced my University performance studies in Guitar in 2014. During this period I engaged in international competitions within Australia, with 4 first prizes.
This 30-year veteran teacher, performer and recording artist can get you started as a beginner, or bring you to the next level as an intermediate or advanced player I have a Masters Degree, and have been performing and teaching for over 35 years. While performing is a delightful experience, I feel equally as enthused when teaching others and helping them grow in their own artistry.
I teach all skill levels, and I cover a broad scope of disciplines, depending on the skill level of the student, from technique intensive guitar-specific things (basic technique to specialized, i.e. arpeggios, fingerstyle) to music theory application, songwriting/composition aid, improvisation, reading etc.
I'm very passionate about music and have been playing and teaching guitar professionally full time for the past 11 years. My lesson curriculum is designed to suit the unique personality and interests of the individual student. I don't believe in a cookie-cutter method of teaching because there are so many paths in music one could take. I help students clearly define and achieve their musical goals.
