Since 2001, I have been teaching private guitar lessons in Westminster, Maryland. I hold a Master's of Music Education from the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University. In addition to my private teaching experience, I have been an adjunct faculty member in the music department at Carroll Community College and a middle school music educator in Carroll and Harford county public schools. I am a former member of the Colgan-Hirsh band and the Alpenlaenders band.
