I am a recording artist that tours nationally and locally to serve Christian churches; I have a degree in Christian Studies with Biblical emphasis. I want to teach students who aspire to lead worship, record music, play guitar, or have any interest in contributing musically to their church. I like to be fun and unconventional, research and glean wisdom from all sorts of professionals in the field of worship music. I'm brimming with examples, tools, challenges, and fun facts about how to improve as a worship leader. Things that you can't learn from a book! I have taught several students who have gone on to find amazing opportunities and jobs that they love in music and worship. I would love to help you on your journey as a worship leader, guitar player, or singer in general.
I've been giving lessons for over 10 years. I've taught probably 20 students. My students have gone on to find real jobs that pay them well and opportunities to plug into churches as worship leaders. Check out my resume and see if those experiences are things you'd like to hear about and see come to fruition in your own life and career! I can help you get there.
If a student wishes to learn guitar and voice training, I can do both but they would need to be separate lessons. I'd like to focus on voice for a full hour or guitar for a full hour.
