Music Degree from Berklee College of Music 09’. Piano concentration with a bachelors in Electronic Production and Sound Design. Great with kids, but teaches students ranging from 6 to 96 years old. I specialize in teaching classical, jazz, rock, funk, R&B, reggae, ambient, and electronic music.


I have spent the last 32 years of my life perfecting the keyboard and the last 18 years building my audio production, composition, and sound design skillset. As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I have gained an immeasurable amount of music theory knowledge, performance techniques, technical knowledge and musicianship training. Since graduating I have been a part of multiple successful projects that played sold out gigs at such esteemed venues as the Paradise Rock Club, House of Blues, and the Orpheum Theater in Boston, MA as well as many festivals including Lucidity, The Great North, Disc Jam, Camp Bisco and more. I have also played in bands with top tier musicians such as Ed Mann of Frank Zappa, Steve Molitz of Phil Lesh and Friends/Particle, Richard James of Pink Talking Phish, and more! I have also started my own recording studio here in Santa Barbara where I record, mix, and master music, foley, sound design, podcasts, and more!


I’m a natural born teacher. Patient, thorough, and fun. There is nothing that excites me more than seeing a student progress on their instrument and push themselves to be a better musician whether that be through performance, music production, or programming. I have had many students over the past 10 years from 4 years old to 96 years old.  My students have enjoyed learning to read music, how to produce music with Pro Tools, Logic, or Ableton live, and how to improvise.  I teach students both in person and virtually.
