I have been, in some fashion, a music educator since I was 14. I started teaching music at the Songcatchers Inc. Program in New Rochelle as a volunteer in 2000 and have been passionate about it ever since, ultimately turning it into my career when I finished Undergrad at Eastman/ U of R in 2008. During my last semester there, as well as any break that saw me returning home to New Rochelle, NY, I continued to teach music in any capacity that I could - private lessons and schools, charter schools, teaching agencies, camps, etc. Since 2008, I have hosted more than 8 studio recitals for my students and run myself as a business, seeking to musically educate as many people as I can.

I strongly believe music and frankly all mediums of art are woven into the fabric of who we are as human beings, and a valuable resource for us in achieving a truly enlightened society. Despite this, music and art are all too frequently the first curricula cast aside by public schools and even in general. This has always struck me as incredibly short sighted given that music especially, gives students of all ages a chance to hone multiple intelligences/skills at once (motor coordination, language, visual perception, auditory perception, etc.). So I guess in a sense I am trying to balance the scales with my chosen career. Additionally, in recent years I've become passionate about discussing and planning long term musical goals with high school age students. For example, I've had students apply to and achieve admission to schools like SUNY Purchase and Berklee, under my guidance and accompaniment.

In short, I relish any opportunity to bring personal development and joy to anyone, especially open minds. Now, more than ever, it is so vital. So too, will I relish the opportunity to work for you, if it is given.
