An award-winning educated Singer, Guitarist, Bassist, Music Producer, Composer and a Music School Teacher. Growing up in music school set me on a path to gather a bunch of musical skills along the way. I'm not just throwing around a list of instruments—I've dedicated a portion of my life to learning each one. From guitars (both electric and classical) to piano, bass guitar, double bass, and even a dabbling in drums—I've given each instrument its due attention. But, I didn't stop there; I was a singer my whole life and I spent time in a lot of different genres (Operatic singing, Metal screaming, Rock and Pop), I also compose orchestral music, and produce pop tracks too. I've dedicated chunks of my life to mastering these skills, and now I want to help you master them too. 

I believe that with the evolving music industry we have to evolve as individuals. Music is a constant subject to change, so, whether you are a teacher or a performer, you have to welcome that change. My goal is to use it to my advantage as an artist and a teacher while bringing some of my own change into the world through my music and through shaping the young minds of tomorrow.

In my teaching style, I mix my love for music with my adventures spanning 25 years in the field. Picture a blend of all the genres I've played, the stages I've rocked, and the melodies I've composed, all dancing together in my teaching approach.

From jamming on stages across Europe to recording scores for Hollywood, I infuse my classes with stories from the road and lessons learned in the studio. Whether we're diving into the depths of composition or perfecting instrumental skills, I aim to go beyond just the notes on the page.

I want my students to feel the soul of music, not just play it. It's about more than mastering techniques; it's about understanding the heart behind each tune. My goal? To inspire budding musicians, spark their creativity, and show them that music isn’t just a skill—it's a lifelong love affair waiting to be explored.
