One of my greatest joys is teaching guitar and helping others develop their passion for music. With twelve years of experience, I enjoy discovering the unique ways my students learn so that he can help them bridge the gap to guitar proficiency.

I currently teach in west San Jose at my private studio and also work as a music professor at West Valley College. I collaborate with clients over either in person or Zoom.
