Producer, Musician, Songwriter, Singer and Educator | 15 years Experience

As a professional artist-producer and graduate of Los Angeles College of Music, I know how important teaching and mentor-ships can be to students. My experience ranges from students as young as 4 years old just beginning to learn the piano to adults who would like to take their skills to the next level. As a multifaceted creator, I love helping students take their interest in a subject and expanding upon it. If you’re interested in music lessons then potentially that leads to making beats, songwriting or producing. Or possibly a student wants to get more familiar with Ableton Live and finds him/herself wanting to develop their piano skills so they may program MIDI easier. Whatever the case may be, I love helping people make those connections and strengthen those areas.

My self-produced artist project has been featured on CNN, ABC’s Vista L.A., LA WEEKLY, OC WEEKLY and popular radio outlets like NPR. I’ve also played at prestigious music venues like Amoeba Music in Hollywood, The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and opened concerts for large Latin artists on tour.

I've also been on staff at Hollywood Music Academy and have taught privately for 12 years. My approach explains the complexity of these instruments/skills in a simple manner that helps students grasp the concepts and begin playing, producing and/or composing immediately.

Shoot me a message and we can book a first lesson and further assess if we’d be a good fit!
I'm also bi-lingual in Spanish.


I believe that teaching is much more than a student learning to play their instrument. It's about creating a fun environment where students not only get a solid musical foundation but are also encouraged to express themselves creatively!

During the first class I'll sit with students to discover what their aspirations are with their selected instrument. This information helps me develop a path forward in regards to their lesson plan as each students plan of action is tailored to their individual goals.
