About this pro

I have been teaching private music lessons since 1980. I sing and play 18 different stringed instruments. I was a guitar player all my life. When I was 46, I was in a car accident and told I would never use my right hand again. After two years of not using my hand, I began using music instruments to rehab my hand. At age 50 I started a music career I only dreamed about in my 20s! I can teach you to play ANY stringed instrument you want to learn.

I like working with people. I LOVE all kinds of music and playing music is the best part of my day. I like passing the gift of music on to other people by teaching them to play.
