I specialize in Rockabilly guitar, my 30 year profession in the Hillbilly Hellcats Rockabilly band. I taught in Colorado at Villa Music, Boulder Music, Prosound Music, and Robb's Music for 24 years. I have a music recording arts certificate from Musicians Institute 2004, and had private studies with Bill Frisell for almost a year in 1973. I was the first adopter of Chapman Stick in Colorado in 1976, and will also teach that. Recently i have been learning pedal steel guitar.
