I teach multiple students about sound (the physics and aeshetics), sound design, and rhthym using analog synthesizers and drum machines. If you are interested in knowing more about this, just let me know!





Programs & Distance Learning

I don't want my kids to lose a year of school. Do you offer homeschooling support and how much would it cost?


Yes - I am working with a variety of families to set up homeschooling for this school year. I have a few different models available, which run the gamut from full schooling to supplemental support for Acellus, to traditional small group tutoring sessions. The cost varies according to how many hours and how many students participate, however the range tends to be between $20 and $35 per student per hour. Please set up a time to speak with me so that we can discuss this in greater detail and come up with a plan that works for you.




I see you work mostly upcountry. I live in West/South Maui. Do you have someone that can work with me?


Yes, we can help you out. Just give me a call or schedule an appointment and we'll talk about what we can set up for you.




Do you offer Distance Learning via Zoom?


Yes I do! I have some great tools for that. So, whether you are quarantined from travel or are off-island, I can help you.
