General Info

I teach piano, voice, songwriting, music theory, and composition lessons in Northeast Los Angeles, California.

I’ve been playing and singing for nearly 30 and teach many styles and levels from my private studio.

I began teaching when I was 16 to my peers and to other kids. Contact me for a lesson, no pressure and no obligations.

I’m a fun-loving but focused, laid back guy. I like doing things the right way while always keeping things fun.
