About Me

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 35 years. I graduated from William Paterson University with a B.A. in music with emphasis in education and classical guitar studies. I have performed in many eniviroments including theater, national rock show venues, small club dates and recording studio sessions. My primary instruments are guitar, electric bass, ukulele and paino. As an instructor, I tailor lessons to accommodate each student's needs, whether they are a beginner or someone aspiring to reach an advanced level. I teach a variety of playing styles such as: classical, jazz, blues, country, and rock. Some of my main influences are: David Gilmour, Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Chet Akins, and Andre Segovia. I enjoy listening to and playing a wide spectrum of music styles ranging  from heavy metal to classical. Music has been an important and enjoyable part of my life. I hope to share the fulfilment music has brought me through the years with each of my studients.
