About Me

I’m a guitarist, and teacher of the heart.
I love to play with passion, and teaching becomes a joy.

I like to connect with the student, hear what they want with their guitar and music, and help, and encourage them and lead them in that direction.

We all have our own way that we learn best,
and as we dive in to lessons as student and teacher,
I’m keen on their strengths and encourage those.

I like to start out teaching a student their favorite song,
and show them their capable. I mix in theory, as we go, so they learn more naturally.

I have performed professionally for 29 years, and have played across the US as well as a 4 year stay in St. Croix USVI.
