I've had private students of all ages and particularly enjoy connecting with aspiring musicians. For the past few years, I've traveled extensively as a member of Matuto, a band that performs and teaches as cultural ambassadors to the U.S. State Department. Needless to say, I've learned a great deal from my students on these tours throughout the Middle East, Asia, and Europe.
In addition to private instruction, I lead songwriting workshops, performance ensembles, and digital music production classes through Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute. I work with students in the city’s juvenile justice system, helping them share their personal experience through music. I teach drums, guitar, piano, songwriting and music production. With my guidance, students form ensembles that write, perform, and record their own music.
This Instagram account has quickly become my main platform for publicly developing new ideas. I shoot and edit each video and sync original music, samples, and sound design, manipulating the source audio or composing a new piece altogether. These sketches are the inspiration for my forthcoming album - You can follow me here if you like - Enjoy!
