I began my career as an Educator in 2010 when I worked with individuals who needed help with their Instrumental Playing and Academic skills. Upon graduation from high school in 2011, I taught part-time at multiple schools while obtaining my Bachelor of the Arts Degree in Music Education. I received my Degree in 2015 and have taught as a Full-Time Educator from 2015 until the early part of 2017. I look to complete my Master of the Arts - Education Degree in 2018 from Loyola Marymount University. After the completion of my contract, I have decided to focus on the Individual Side of Education and am looking to build my studio of students once more. As an Educator, I love to help students out as much as possible! I encourage informative lessons that also are fun, engaging, and energetic. I also make sure that I design student-specific curriculum that ensures the greatest levels of success and improvement for the student. I have hundreds of testimonials from previous students that can be provided upon request to ensure that you are dealing with a legitimate educator with the students' best interests in mind. I also ensure that I offer lessons at reasonable prices with the highest of quality (taught by educators at the Doctorate Level and currently have my Bachelor's Degree and working towards my Master's).

I approach teaching in a very nurturing, fun, and enjoyable environment. There is no reason to play music when you are not enjoying what is being produced. I ensure my lessons are extremely informative and makes the students smile every time they come in to learn. I have high standards, but also understand that everyone learns at their own pace. I will make sure I provide my students the tools to succeed at any level.
