Thank you for visiting my website! I have been living and teaching in Mill Valley, CA since 1999. I have a BA in music from Sonoma State University and 25 years of experience performing.
In addition to teaching locally, I’m excited to offer private lessons through online video meetings. This is a solution for local students to eliminate traffic time and for online students to benefit from personalized instruction.
My goal is to inspire and build confidence while providing a fun, creative outlet for self-expression.
My students have been awarded scholarships to conservatories and universities, and later gone on to become successful performers and educators. However serious or casual the student, I encourage building a positive relationship with music that will last a lifetime.
I teach jazz, rock, pop, R&B, funk, blues, African, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian rhythms, drum set, rudimental and orchestral snare drum, reading, transcription, essential piano, guitar and bass skills, music theory and technique.
