Music is a way for me to be creative and grow as a person because I can use songs to pinpoint different parts of my life and hear how I am progressing as a musician and a person. I am passionate about helping students learn about music because music is something that I picked up and never regret doing so.
I have experience teaching music since I worked in the Lessons Department at Guitar Center. I taught students of many different ages as well as privately and in a group.
Regarding my education, I attended the University of Houston and graduated with a Bachelor's in the Arts, majoring in Media Production and minor in Technology.
I mostly emphasize my teaching on guitar, whether it be bass, acoustic, classical or electric, electric being my main instrument. Electric guitar is my favorite because my favorite genre of music is rock and metal. I also like Flamenco and Latin music as well and I incorporate those elements into my electric guitar playing.
I think that music is fun and also a great way to teach self-discipline because it's one of those things that you have to keep going at to get better. I personally have applied that philosophy on my musical journey, especially when it comes to learning scales, technique, songwriting, and practice routines. I am a person who adapts very well and will do my best to ensure that my students understand what is being presented to them in a manner that is fun and engaging to them.
Outside of music, I also enjoy learning about audio production and I enjoy making videos, whether it be for my music, or for my colleagues’ video projects.
Music has opened my mind to new genres and new ways to approach learning and teaching. I hope that with my passion, my students will have the drive and ambition to be better musicians and open their minds to learning different things in many different ways.
