Aaron was a student at Music and Arts for years, and enjoys helping the next generation of musicians prepare and enjoy playing music.
"It's great to know that this town loves and supports music. Teaching students and trying an instrument out for the first time, is an incredible way to bring all people together to join in the fun of this great music scene."
No matter what age or skill level you are at, Aaron is happy to help you connect with your music drive and improve your playing.
"I like to bring both the classroom and live performance perspectives into my lessons. It helps students understand the need for rudimentary skills, and how to apply them in the real world. The age of the student has no impact on this, because everyone has a favorite type of music they can identify with. These lessons will give you the tools and methods to develop your musicical abilities, and reach your goals.
