Learn With Me!

Want to be a musical chameleon or become a virtuoso on one instrument? You're in the right place.

 

My goal with teaching music is to equip students with the tools and mindset necessary to free themselves of limitations. I want to work with you to identify your goals, and work towards them in which you will actually have fun and learn. ​Before taking lessons, I invite prospective students to do a trial session in which you can experience my teaching method and I can answer any questions you may have. Music lessons are available in New York City or remote. Book here.

Learn violin, saxophone, piano, guitar, drums, or mandolin. 

All ages welcome. Beginner to expert. 

Additionally, I can expand our lessons to include music theory, ear training, writing music/lyrics, and mindfulness. It is my goal that every student finishes a lesson with a sense of calm and gratitude from the joys of making music.
