ABOUT

I'm looking for like-minded musicians to form/join a band/group and begin rehearsing and playing shows immediately. Not bragging, but I could read and write music before I could read and write English. As a kid, I would sit next to my dad at the piano and just copy him (both my dad and his dad are musicians, it runs in my family). I began formal training at age 5 and 28 years later, I have written hundreds of songs, performed in several bands on national tours, had music videos on MTV, and have worked with some amazing artists and producers (Walk The Moon, The Vaccines, David Schuler, Sam Hollander, and Dave Katz, to name a few).

I studied Music Composition and Theory at NYU with a minor in film scoring and piano performance. I've recently moved to London (Hampstead) from the US, and I'm looking to continue my music career. My primary instruments are piano, vocals, guitar, and bass. I've taken singing lessons, composition lessons, drum lessons, conducting lessons, cello lessons, trombone lessons, clarinet lessons, and flute lessons. My primary focus is pop/rock music, but I love all kinds of music and come from a varied training background. For example, I am a classically trained pianist, but also took 10 years of lessons on trumpet (jazz and classical). Guitar work has been primary rock/blues/pop, but at NYU, I studied and wrote a great deal of electronic music.
