- Teaching since:
I am a fiddle, mandolin, and guitar player with a passion for bluegrass and old time music. Over my years of learning to play this music, I have been taught by many amazing teachers and mentors, which has inspired me to want to teach and mentor other musicians.
My students can expect to learn whatever kind of music they are most interested in, or if they prefer, I can choose some music to start them out on. I have experience in learning multiple styles of music from various teachers with different teaching styles, which gives me the ability to explain things to my students in many different ways to ensure they fully understand. I believe a solid foundation of technique and music theory will help any student succeed in learning how to play any genre of music.
Some examples of things students can benefit from lessons with me include: expanding repertoire, ear training, music reading, improvising, jamming, music theory, and technique.
I am very energetic and enthusiastic, I love to teach! I am a very encouraging teacher and I love seeing my students succeed. I am looking forward to meeting you soon and hope you can learn something valuable from me!
I am the leader of my own bluegrass band based in Baltimore. I enjoy leading rehearsals and playing a major role in finding gigs.
Play in a small ensemble during Friday night services once a month to help bring the family oriented program to life.
On at least a bi-monthly basis, I provide an all ages bluegrass program where I play music in the library. I especially enjoy when children sit down and listen, and I have a chance to teach them a little bit about what I do.
I was a fiddle player and backup singer for the show "Always Patsy Cline" put on by the Dundalk Community Theater
