Overview

I hold a B.A. in Music from Covenant College, where my instrument of study was the mandolin. I studied for two years under Matt Flinner, winner of the National Mandolin Contest 1991 in Winfield, Kansas.

My particular strength as a player and teacher is on tone and technique. My lessons focus firstly on creating a clean, clear tone, practicing good right hand and left hand technique.

Though I do work with students to play by ear and improvise, I also like to emphasize reading music on the mandolin and understanding music theory. These emphases are balanced according to the particular interests and goals of the particular student. The goal of my teaching is to encourage the student to become a well-rounded musician. This way the student can achieve their current musical goals, but also will have the foundation to pursue additional unforeseen goals and interests as they progress.

If the student has interest, I also can teach lessons on mandola and tenor guitar.
