I am a lifelong full time professional guitarist living in Lafayette, Co. My band is rated #5 Denver rock band on Reverbnation.
I started teaching at Villa Music in North Valley shopping center, Denver, in 1973. In 1975 I also began teaching at the Villa Music in Southglenn. I relocated to Boulder county in 1976 and started teaching at Solid Sound in Boulder, where I continued with 40 to 50 weekly private students until 1989, at which time I began teaching at Robb's Music in Boulder. I continued teaching there until 1994, at which time I stopped to focus on songwriting and performance. In 2004 I moved to Hollywood, Ca. where I lived until 2007 while I was obtaining a commercial music certificate from Musicians' Institute.
I have studied privately with noted Jazz guitarists Bill Frissell and Dale Bruning.
I have recorded 4 CDs of original music which can be found on Amazon and iTunes.
My performances have taken me all over the United States as well as 11 European countries.
Most students like to learn by having me show them their favorite songs, which I can do and explain the elements of the song while you are learning to play it. Some students
already play by ear and wish to get more of a grasp of music theory, improvisation, chord substitution, etc., and I am happy to concentrate on that, also.
