I have been fortunate to do what I love. Since graduating in 1992, I have been able to make a living as a musician/music teacher. I have played gigs at weddings, clubs, bars, private parties, etc. I have also developed my teaching business during the week. I have also been fortunate to record a CD on an Indie label of my original music. I also perform with my jazz trio, The Jazzy 3 at many private events in New York and Connecticut.

Leni really enjoyed her lessons and when she was on a break she was so excited to learn to play, that she was practicing instead of playing on her ipad!

We’ve had a great experience with Brian as our son’s guitar teacher for almost three years. Brian is a patient instructor who has nurtured our son’s interest in music and has helped him to focus on the basics. He has enabled our son to explore the guitar an instrument and to instill an appreciation of how artists play it across genres. As a professional musician, Brian conveys a sense of presence and performance, which has been evident in the periodic recitals hosted for his students. Through the recitals, and the prep sessions for them, our son has learned to play both classical pieces and contemporary songs with a notable degree of poise and self-confidence.

Brian's been teaching our kids for over two years, and he is the best! He's talented, a skilled teacher, and patient. He really makes himself available for "group gigs" so his students can jam together and learn about playing in a band. We're very happy that he's our kids' music instructor.
