About Max

I am very proud to have been born and raised on the lovely island of Guam! I have experience teaching a variety of styles to students of all ages; beginner students are welcome! I strive to make my lessons personalized, funnnn, and at a comfortable pace. I have been performing, writing, and recording for over 10 years, so I have a lot of hands on experience that I can share with my students. In 2007, I earned my associates degree in music from Musicians Institute Hollywood. I have had my music placed in popular television shows, such as “The Real World” and “Road Rules," as well as the film “The Tested.”
I previously played guitar in a project called Xolie Morra and the Strange Kind. We were featured as the musical guest on the popular late night talk show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in January 2014. We were also featured on the local television programs "Art Zone with Nancy Guppy" and "New Day Northwest." We are also featured on YouTube as sponsored artists on EMGtv and Blue Microphones. I also have had the opportunity to share the stage with Crosby Stills and Nash, John Mayer, Don Felder, Brandi Carlile, Russell Ferrante, Travis Carlton, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. 
Guitar is my main focus, but I am also comfortable teaching bass. I love all styles, and specialize in rock, blues, funk, pop, reggae, metal, and acid jazz. I have experience teaching students of all ages (as young as 4 years old), and I am also comfortable teaching in Japanese.
