From a lifetime of music performance and creation, I am thrilled to instruct and coach individuals on their instrument. I began playing guitar at age 9, and my path culminated in 25 years as a professional--I was the lead guitarist for the band Young Dubliners, who recorded several albums and literally toured the world. By giving of my vast experience, I hope to teach students the connection to their musical path.

Every person learns at least a little differently -- yet the language of music is universal. I enjoy helping each student hear and understand that language. I have trained as a teacher of the Suzuki Music Method, which effects all styles of music that I teach. Helping new and experienced musicians to play new techniques and master musical expression are my program goals.

    Frequently asked questions

    To start, all the student needs is their instrument! For beginners, we will supply learning materials for the early lessons, before beginning a method book. Players with experience are welcome to bring materials in that they are working with, or our instructor will determine a lesson plan.

    I started playing guitar as child--over 40 years ago! For 18 years, I toured the US and Europe as the lead guitarist for the Young Dubliners, with whom I wrote and recorded 6 albums. I have always instructed guitar in addition to my work as a performing artist. I studied music theory at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, CA. Also, I studied privately with jazz guitarist Jim Hewitt. I have completed teacher training for the Suzuki guitar method, book 1 and 2.
