I love to teach the guitar and look forward to the opportunity to help you get on your way to making music. I have been playing the guitar for 25 years, and teaching music for 20 years. I have developed my own charts, lesson materials, and a highly effective method of delivering the knowledge I have gained in simple language that is easily understood. I have studied with the best teachers in New Orleans, NY, and CA including Ray Brown, Steve Masakowski, and Ellis Marsalis. In addition to performing live in major club venues in NYC and New Orleans, I have produced my own CD, and was signed to a record label that distributed the music internationally. I have also recorded and performed with many top musicians including Matisyahu for whom I recorded 4 tracks on his debut album, "Shake Off The Dust...Arise."
