My musical background includes extensive study in both guitar and bass, a myriad of performance opportunities- currently as half of the acoustic guitar duo, “Dove Creek” with my buddy and fellow instructor, Jeff Nickel– and more recently as an ASCAP member songwriter, assisting students with their own creative endeavors. I love variety and have plenty of experience with praise/worship, bluegrass, pop, rock, country, blues and jazz, which is likely why I maintain such a wide range of student ages. I enjoy helping the very young beginner as well as the adult picking up an instrument for the first time. I also have instructed many intermediate and advanced students, encouraging their learning and progression to the next level.
It is a unique privilege to get to spend a work week doing what I love; teaching folks how to play their music the way they’ve always wanted.
