I am a Guitarist/Composer/Songwriter/Bassist/Vocalist with a Bachelor Of Music Education Degree from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Classical Guitar emphasis. I've also recieved graduate work in Theory and Composition. I've also been teaching Guitar for over 30 years as well as being a Music Educator in the public school system for 16 years. I've held many Church Music positions in the Mississippi Gulf Coast area over the last 25 years. In addition, I just recorded a Jazz project entitled, "Graffiti Bridge" where I wrote and played most of the Guitar, Bass, and Keyboard parts. I've also led many choirs over my career and provided years of vocal instruction. I've written music for Solo Guitar, Strings, Concert Band, as well as Choral Music.
I love to share my passion for music with my students as they progress and grow as musicians. Each student is different and I think that it is important for a teacher to communicate with the student to find out what their goals and aspirations are for their personal musical growth. In addition, their are certain things that I think are important for each student to know such as music reading, basic musicianship, playing with other musician at all levels, and understand genres, etc.
In addition, I think that it is important for a teacher to nurture the passion for music that hopefully is present in each student. A teacher cannot create passion but they can nurture it.
I look forward to the opportunity to share my musical knowledge and experience with you!
