Bass Guitar, Guitar
I started guitar at age 12 inspired by the Beatles,moved it into the garage for several years and moved up. I studied with a few great teachers including Pat Martino. I got heavy full time into teaching and playing at 25. Music is my life. I have had students in signed bands and I have one now who is touring the world with the Michael Jackson Immortal Tour. I love to help people learn to play and send them towards their dream. I played Dickey Betts for 4 years. I now play with Jaimoe, a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band. We have been together playing for 22 years. I can help a beginner start on the bass or guitar. I can also help someone who has been playing how to sharpen their game,improve their skills and expand their musical boundaries.
