I have been working as a musician for 25 years, playing all styles. From polka to jazz, and classical to hip hop I played every gig I could get! This helped me grow as a musician and an educator.
I play piano, guitar, bass, and the touch guitar. A guitar with the octave range of a piano, by which the performer plays bass and guitar simultaneously by touching (or tapping) the strings. I've been playing touch-style for 20 years and I teach master classes on the technique. I also teach music theory, harmony/arranging, and musicianship/performance classes.
In addition to being a graduate of the Hartford Conservatory of Music [Hartford, Connecticut], I also studied at the University of Limerick, Ireland, and the University of the Arts [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania]. I have performed solo tours in the United States, Ireland, Belgium, and Holland. I've also performed with Ray Brown (jazz bassist), Glenn Branca (avant-garde composer), and many other talented musicians.
