About me:

I’ve loved instruments since I was five years old and started playing my babysitters piano. I was told over and over to not choose a life as a musician because there was no future in it. I got a BS in Journalism and tepidly tried out other career choices, while continuing to sing in ensembles, study the bass guitar and guitar.

Over the past couple of decades, I’ve added ukulele and drums to my repertoire and graduated with an AA in Jazz Pedagogy from Cuesta College. In addition to my decades of practice, local and national performance, I’ve trained and taught privately, at TeVelde Conservatory of Music, have taught at Cuesta’s College for Kids, and regularly perform with my rock band, Hot Tina.

My passion lies in guiding students to lead an artful life by equipping them with skills that transcend the realms of music into every dimension life. My patience and ability to relate to all different personality types keeps my waiting list full of students I’ve had the honor to train for many years.

My students with a passion for music go on to pursue music degrees, compose and release their own music and audition and perform with confidence.
