Teaching since:

I have been playing music professionally for over 30 years. I have toured the world extensively, performed and recorded on nearly 100 albums. I have worked with the likes of Ani Difranco, Ron Sexsmith, BareNaked Ladies, Jason Collette, Rick Moranis and many others. I am a multi instrumentalist primarily focused on banjo, electric and upright bass. I have a solid foundation in music theory and performance.
Students will learn how to approach their respective instruments but more importantly will explore the joy of making and creating music and have a great time doing so!!!
