I Teach Lessons!
dI teach hour lessons at $40.00/hr out of a studio at my home in Bristol, CT. I teach guitar in just about any style one would care to learn, whether it be rock, jazz or classical. Recitals are encouraged for your participation to show off your skills! A line up of back up players are also at your disposal, as well.
I also offer composition lessons where we analyze the works of composers, write exercises, and study your own compositions. Performances of your works are pursued as well through my network of friends and performers in the Hartford area. Playing guitar is not a requirement for composition lessons. Bring what you got!
I have been playing the guitar since I was eight years old. I grew up playing in different bands and musical productions in CT and CO and have composed for various artists in the US and Europe.
I studied guitar performance and composition at Metropolitan State University of Denver and played in some Denver-based groups like Erszebet, Wither Without, and Eminence Ensemble out of Boulder. Each group was very different, from jazz to heavy metal to electro-dance-rock, I have played in a variety of styles.
My compositional work has been awarded internationally by notable grand prizes in composition including the 2011 Josef Dorfman Composition Competition at the International Summer Akademie of Musik in Ochsenhausen, Germany and the 2011 Playground Ensemble's Colorado Composer's Commission in Denver, Colorado.
Hope to hear from you!
