Significant teachers and mentors:
Sergio Assad, Denis Azabagic, Dr. Brian Torosian
Teaching philosophy and areas of expertise:
I base my teaching method around classical guitar technique, being very good note readers, while also stressing the importance of improvisation and creativity. I work to help students understand the importance of having a relaxed technique while also giving them the tools that they will need in order to eventually study on their own.

Favorite composer or piece to play:
I really love to play the keyboard transcriptions of Domenico Scarlatti and Isaac Albeniz.
