About Me

Since graduating college, I have had several great opportunities to work with children in a wide variety of circumstances. I have happily served as a sports coach, guitar instructor, youth pastor, camp counselor, and babysitter to children as young as 6 years old, as old as high school, and every age in between. I can play hours of games with one child, teach guitar to ten children, or entertain one hundred children from a stage.

To me, entertaining, educating, or enriching a child all come from the same root process: Entering into the world as the child sees it, and having a blast exploring it together. I have implemented this approach into an introductory music curriculum for children, to be used at schools or in homes. Aside from my work with children, I am a songwriter/composer, play piano, guitar, saxophone, banjo, and ukulele, and enjoy exercise.

Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children, Multiples
