I have taught at Berklee College of Music, The New England Harmonica and Guitar Intensive, Eliot Innovation School, Boston Latin School, Club Passim School of Music, and the Concord Conservatory of Music. I run a thriving guitar and banjo studio at the Cambridge Music Consortium (CMC), and enjoy every moment. Over 10 years of experience as an instructor, I have taught thousands of guitar, banjo, and ensemble lessons.

Why study with me?

  • I love teaching!teaching is not just a way for me to pay the bills. I love working with students of all ages and skill levels.

  • I am an award-winning practitioner - my extensive performance and composition experience makes me an effective educator. I practice what I preach, and bring wisdom from years of stage and studio experience into the classroom as I work with you.

  • I tailor my curriculum to fit your goals - I work with each student to develop a personalized study plan. This non-dogmatic approach allows me to make a genuine and meaningful connection with my students, and makes lessons fun and engaging. I take the time to get to know you, and have the tools to meet you where you are, regardless of your stylistic preferences. Pop, indie, rock, blues, Celtic? Your choice!

  • My approach is holistic - I promote the development of listening skills, body awareness, and humor as invaluable tools on the path towards mastering a musical instrument.​ I combine an emphasis on learning by ear with formal tools such as sight reading and harmonic analysis.

I look forward to working with you! Please feel free to contact me at for more details, and to schedule an in-person or online lesson.
