I am a certified music teacher, state of Arizona, K-12. I taught music in the public and Catholic school systems here in Arizona for three years. One of my private students was recently accepted to the Arizona School for the Arts. I attended the University of Southern California as a music performance major in Classical Guitar. After receiving my Bachelor of Music Degree in Guitar Performance with honor from DePaul University in Chicago, I went on to Peabody Conservatory of Music, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore Maryland, as a special student in graduate guitar studies. There I studied for two years under the renowned classical guitar teacher Aaron Shearer.
