I enjoy sharing my love and passion for music with others! I have instructed privately for over 27 years. I have instructed in music store studios, my home studio, and in-home lessons. I have instructed in public, private and charter school systems; class room and privately. Besides performing, instruction (passing it on) is my passion.
I have been performing professionally for over 35 years. I have toured nationally and internationally. I have been a full time self employed musician since 1987.
