I have had over thirty years of experience playing jazz guitar and can sight read music. I also have a very well rounded background in theory, as I have studied in college classes as well as independently.

I have experience playing in a number of different styles and in large group ensembles to smaller groups and even solo for a number of different jobs. My versatility and adaptability make me an ideal candidate for tutoring and helping the student to explore a number of avenues for his/her own creativity.

Composition (Music), Ear Training, General Music, Guitar, Music Theory, Songwriting
Art:
Composition (Music)
