I am a local musician playing in bands for 10 years. I can play multiple instruments (bass, drums, guitar, etc.) and multiple genres. I have sincerely enjoyed teaching others how to get started in playing music and empower them to find their own creative voice.
Music is an unspoken language with no boundaries that is constantly evolving. I am personable and am equipped with great communicative skills to convey such abstract concepts in a cohesive manner.
