Guitar has been a lifelong journey for me. I took my first lesson at age 13. However, I started making noise on my mom's guitar when I was just barely big enough to get my arms around it, so I've been playing as long as I can remember. Upon finishing college, I began teaching and performing professionally. After several years of teaching independently, I'm very excited to be part of such an incredible team of educators!
