About Me

I studied jazz guitar under Paul Byrne, a student of Dennis Sandole, near Philadelphia from 1975 to 1979. I continued study under Nick Katzman, a student of Charlie Banocos, in Berlin Germany 1984 to 1986. I took a 4 hour private lesson with Pat Martino in 1989. I studied classical and jazz under Jimmy Duckworth in Charlotte in the late 80's. I started performing on bass clubs and festivals throughout the southeast in 1991 and continue today. Styles performed on bass are jazz, rock, country, bluegrass, blues, show tunes, R&B, hard rock New Orleans funk,and top 40. Guitar performances have primarily been jazz and show tunes.

I feel it is important for the student to have a solid background in basic theory and technique so they may continue their path for a lifetime of music making. I teach most ages and styles on bass, fretless bass and guitar. I also offer lessons as occupational therapy.
