I’m a touring and session musician, guitarist, songwriter, arranger and composer. I graduated from Musicians Institute on Music and Guitar Performance, awarded the Synester Gates Scholarship. I’ve played with Steve Vai and led a solo with his band, Paul Reed Smith, Scott Page (Pink Floyd), Carlos Alomar (David Bowie), Corey Feldman among others. I’m an EMG, Yamaha and LINE 6 artist and product tester. I’ve toured all the U.S twice having over 70 live shows. I’m part of a worldwide community of female musicians and guitarists among the best of the world and we have a photoshoot every year at NAMM. I have participated in benefit performances, recording sessions, directed music bands, have experience teaching guitar and bass lessons for all ages in English and Spanish. I have a total of 70 live shows only in Los Angeles. My total of live performances are over 140. I started uploading videos at 15 years old playing punk rock covers to YouTube and received attention by going viral and being mentioned on social media by some of the bands or artists covered such as Simple Plan and Orianthi. One of my videos passed over 115,000 views. I’m followed on social media by several artists supporting my work such as Joe Satriani, Orianthi(Michael Jackson), Rob Scallon, Jared Dines, Synester Gates(Avenged Sevenfold), Nili Brosh, Chris Broderick(Megadeth) John Illsley, Doug Doppler, Melia Maccarone to name a few. I record my own music, videos and collaborate with many independent artist as well. I have basic to intermediate knowledge playing piano, drums and bass.
I started playing piano when I was 3 years old and to be honest, I was never into it. I listened to classic rock on the radio and wanted to play like Eddie Van Halen and all the virtuosos. The sound of a guitar makes me feel amazing and playing it changes the way I see the world. I started teaching myself online and then got private lessons with different musicians and music schools. Nevertheless, I always wanted to study at Musicians Institute like the big influences I had. I learned a lot from the best teachers with great backgrounds between jazz, fusion, blues, rock and metal. I got to know what I love the most, also I learned how to improvise, how to create different chords, the foundation of music and where theory comes from. Not to mention to always keep practice interesting. Attending clinics, having feedback and playing with the masters such as Steve Vai or Joe Satriani are life changing experiences and would love to share them with my students. School is part of the journey but I have to say performing real gigs help as well to learn how to react to any circumstance that happens on stage. I appreciate I had the opportunity to tour and play 2 hours every night. My technique and skills improved drastically and I found a method to practice even when you have a tight schedule. After all those experiences I became the guitar player I am and will definitely keep learning while performing and teaching.
I enjoy playing all music genres but I enjoy the most playing and teaching metal, rock and blues. No matter what level you are, I’d love to help you improve your playing, technique and knowledge. Whether you want to learn chords to different chord voicings, scales, modes, exercises, finger strength, speed, arpeggios, reading, music theory or ear training, or anything specific you want to learn, I look forward teaching you and sharing passion for music.
