Here’s a review from the spring semester class — "Ron's ability to combine theory with practical application made learning the new concepts easier. With helpful practice guides for at-home practice during the week, I achieved significant improvement in my skills. Ron is an encouraging and helpful teacher who adapted his lesson plan on the fly as needed to meet the needs of the student. I enjoyed the class tremendously, and felt accomplished by the end of the six weeks! Looking forward to the next session." Krista B. - Illinois

As a Board Certified Music Therapist, I help individuals achieve music and non-music goals through playing music instruments. My primary instruments are guitar and ukulele but expressing oneself on any instrument can increase mental sense of balance, self-discovery and confidence. The music learning experience has been shown for ages to decrease stress, address anxiety, improve symptoms of depression and bring people together. Music Therapy services can be arranged by contacting me directly or by referral from a friend, family member, mental health professional, family physician, educator, or substance abuse organization.

Who I serve

Many of my clients are adults that self-refer. Those under the age of 18 are referred by a parent, or with parental consent, a family doctor, mental health practitioner, or educator.

Conditions I address with Music Therapy include:

Many of my clients are adults who may have discontinued playing music earlier in life and now would like to return to active music playing. In addition, I can help relieve clients in all ages groups of the frustration and unsatisfactory results which typically arise from using internet sources for private instruction and learning.

This is why having a
Board Certified Music Therapist
can make all the difference!


I offer Music Therapy sessions in-person in San Luis Obispo County California. Virtual Music Therapy sessions also available in all of California and states/countries in which we meet appropriate regulations.

I am available as a consultant/therapist to corporate wellness programs, as well as presentations for community groups and educational organizations.
