I have taught students of all ages across the world, including at Berkeley High School, Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, the Conservatorio de Musica Pescara in Italy, in Suriname, South America, and with the Beantown Swing Orchestra, where I'm a regular big band instructor. I have also taught at RealJams Academy at the Real School of Music, Lexploration's "All That Jazz". I have extensive experience teaching private students from ages 7 and up.

I apply essential musicianship skills like ear training, improvisation, theory, composition, and harmony on top of a comprehensive technical background to build the perfect foundation for any young musician.

My goal in music education is to spread the profound joy that playing and studying music has brought me.
