My goal is to share my love for music - I focus on the music the student already loves and also expose them to some new styles they might enjoy (Particularly the kids).I'm an engineer who retired young to teach and play music. I've been teaching since 2001, starting at a local music store in Kenosha, WI. Been playing since 1971, been in several bands in Massachusetts and Wisconsin, playing various instruments, performing original music and singing. Have sung in several choirs. Currently in County Crossings, an Irish & old-time band, in which I play guitar, Banjo and Mandolin & the singer.
