About this pro

If you’re picking up your instrument for the first time, I’ll help you discover talents you probably never knew you had.

If you’ve been playing for a while, I can help you progress as far as your ambition and skills can take you.

Most important, we’ll keep it fresh, fun, and interesting–as music was meant to be.

A working musician who's played with popular bands in several major US cities, I’ve taught kids as young as 8. Singer-songwriters who are working the clubs. Adults realizing their lifelong dreams of playing and writing songs. Professional musicians who want to learn to play in a different style. And people of all ages who just want to play for the fun of it.
