I'm a full-time professional guitar and bass teacher. I've taught over 1,500 students of every age, from absolute beginners to seasoned professionals.
I'm a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who began playing at age nine. I began playing professionally at the age of sixteen, and I eventually taught myself music theory and formal ear training.
I have taken extensive vocal lessons from one of the finest vocal coaches in Colorado, and I have her blessing to teach beginner level singers.
I'm also a graduate of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I've lived here since 1983. Originally, I'm from Cocoa Beach, Florida.
I write and record my original music, typically doing all the vocals and instruments, including drums and keyboards. I often instruct my students on recording, and I encourage them to do it whenever they want. It's not as mystifying as they might think. It can be done very inexpensively at home, and it can open up a whole new and exciting aspect of music for them.
