About this pro

I am a musician, teacher, audio engineer, producer and composer. I have been teaching keyboard, guitar, bass, drums and voice for over 25 years on the CT. shoreline. 

In addition to teaching, I own a recording studio and have taught recording seminars over the years, and many of my students have taken it very seriously and have gone on and made a career for themselves in music  

I have been very fortunate to have worked with some very talented engineers and producers including Kevin Shirley (Journey, Iron Maiden, Black Crowes), Rob Fraboni (Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Beach Boys), James Stroud (Toby Keith and countless other country acts in Nashville), Neal Cappellino (Brad Paisley, Allison Krauss), and Shane Theriot (Hall & Oates, Leann Rimes, Boz Skaggs, Neville Brothers) to name a few  

Ive never been embarrassed to ask questions and pick these gentleman's brains and they have always been very receptive to answering them and sharing their trade secrets with me as many of them have told me that they recognize my talent, my ear, and my burning passion to always absorb and learn  I've taken bits and pieces from the many talented people I have worked with and managed to combine what I've learned into my own style  I feel like I know a great deal, but I am also savvy enough to know there is still SO much to learn as I am constantly reminded of that whenever I do a session with a seasoned engineer/producer. I can't help but discover something new every time I work with these talented individuals  

As far as giving music lessons on instruments, I dont teach out of any particular book and I rarely give the same lesson to more than one student  I try to ascertain the particular individual's goals and needs, and mold the lesson according to what I believe each particular student would want  I am very easy going, always willing to listen, and I think almost every student Ive ever taught has enjoyed their time with me, at least that's what I've been told My lessons generally consist of learning technique, learning to play songs, reading traditional music as well as tablature and music theory
