About this pro

I have over 40 years of performing and recording experience. I am a Hal Leonard Author, NAMM (Fender, Ozztosh, Yamaha and Hal Leonard) performing artist. I've preformed with some of the best.

I have produced over 20 albums for myself and others over the years.

In recent years, I have picked up the ukulele and believe that it is much easier for children to take up, and then later can transition to guitar, when their little hands are bigger.

I beleive that teaching music (of any kind) improves the average intellegence, cognisant skills, etc.....especially for children.
