I am Hartt School graduate (B. Mus ’97 Classical Guitar performance) and have been teaching guitar for nearly twenty years. Though my degree is in classical guitar, I began my study of music on electric guitar which I continue to play today. As a professional musician, I play for a variety of functions from concerts, weddings and corporate receptions on classical guitar to musical theatre and rock bands on electric guitar. This kind of versatility keeps me familiar with a wide variety of music that people listen to. Subsequently, I am right at home teaching whatever may come through the door.
Since I’ve made music my passion and livelihood, I continue to learn and grow to expand my skills. Other instruments I have proficiency on include electric bass, ukulele, mandolin and 5-string and tenor banjos. Recording and arranging are also skills I have acquired as a result of my musical pursuit. I have recorded 3 solo guitar CDs and have played on numerous other recordings for colleagues. I have composed numerous pieces for solo guitar and most recently composed music for the dramatic production “The Parkville Project” which ran it’s premiere at Playhouse on Park, (West Hartford, CT) during July 2010.
