I’ve been a music educator for more than 40 years. I started teaching in 1978 and have run a full time music studio for 25 years. Our past and present students total well over 3,500 taught. I teach a variety of music styles: bluegrass, gospel, country, southern rock, contemporary Christian, and traditional.

​My performing career began at the age of 11 at local music jamborees, festivals, county/state fairs, and square dances. In 1982 I was hired by The Reynolds Family Band as their banjo player and toured with then for 13 years. I have also performed with The Sherle Williams Band, The Hickory Hollow Band, and four-time Kentucky State Championship band The Country Edition. I have also worked as a studio musician for Alpha Recording Company, The Revelators Gospel Quartet, and The Valley Creek Boys. I’ve also had the honor to headline with Dr. Ralph Stanley, Bill Monroe, J.D. Crowe, Del McCourey, Jim and Jesse McReynolds, Bill Harrell and The Virginians, Jimmy Martin, Michael Cleveland, Doyle Lawson, and many others.
