I am a singer/songwriter recording artist, professional local music. I play saxophone and guitar professionally, regularly, around Chico. I play by ear, can improvise freely on all the instruments that I play, and I read music and teach reading/ or playing by ear / or both, depending upon the wish, or needs of the student. I teach with compassion, and experience. I am very thorough, and monitor, and listen, and give immediate candid feedback for swift learning.
