Organization logo

Born in Rapid City, South Dakota, I started taking piano lessons at the age of 6. Since that time, my love for music has grown with each passing day. I graduated from The Entertainment Career Connection in 2010 with a certification in Audio Engineering and Production. There I studied audio mixing, recording, production and mastering. I currently study music education at Denver Metropolitan University. I am very active in the community volunteering my time as the Event Coordinator and Board of Directors for a non-profit organization called The Denver Creative Movement. In addition, I keep myself busy musically playing in my bands, Sleeping Giants, L.A.M.A. LIVE (Little Ambition Makes A lot), and The Free Electric Band. I continue to follow my life-long passion for music by educating others. I believe that music lessons should be a fun and rewarding experience, and place a high value on learning how to use music in everyday life. *** Lesson Details *** Students taking lessons from me can expect one thing for certain, patience. My philosophy is simple, music is FUN! With a laid back relaxed approach to teaching, I make my students feel comfortable and adapt to each student differently. Not every person learns the same way. I understand this, and apply my methods to each individual student so that they best understand in the way that they learn. I teach Guitar, Bass guitar, Songwriting, and Music performance from beginner to advanced. Piano, and Singing lessons are offered at the beginner level only. I also teach ONLINE LESSONS for guitar, bass guitar, songwriting, and music performance. *** Studio Equipment *** Piano, guitars, bass guitars, and amplifiers. Video screen for lesson display. Audio equipment. *** Travel Equipment *** Travel equipment includes guitars, bass guitars, and amplifiers for both. All lesson materials, including books and script paper. *** Specialties *** I teach at all age levels and abilities. My specialty is making your lessons fun! I cater to each individual student, and we design your curriculum around your abilities and goals with your instrument.

Noodle says

Takelessons started as a platform to for music teachers, and is still strongest on that front. It provides tutors with organizational software designed to help track lessons, and so probably attracts more tech-friendly, highly organized tutors. No vetting or training is provided for tutors, so we highly recommend that you use their ratings and reviews when selecting a tutor.

TakeLessons says

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.
