Sound Play Studio is a new approach to learning an instrument. The resources available here are designed to give parents the tools they need to help their children succeed without the cost and hassle of traditional music lessons. The games and activities found on our website and in books like Awesome Guitar for Kids make learning an instrument a fun exploration, rather than a dull chore.

I started Sound Play Studio after 14 years of teaching traditional guitar lessons. I have taught students ranging from four years old beginners up to college music majors. In addition to teaching music, I am also an interventionist, working on foundational math and reading skills with at-risk students at a charter school in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
