He has been playing for twenty plus years and teaching for ten plus. His favorite musicians, composers, and bands are Frédéric Chopin, Johann Sebastian Bach, Robert Muczynski, Tool, The Cult, Depeche Mode, Vampire Weekend, and The Beatles.

He loves portraying music to his students as more of a “healing power” and letting them know how it becomes more beneficial later in life.
