I was born in France and moved to the US as a child; French was my first language. As a youngster I returned to Paris to attend school briefly, and I've visited my family there many times since. I am prepared to teach elementary as well as conversational French, both spoken and written.
My background is in folk, blues, and classical guitar. I've been playing since age 12 - one highlight was performing at the 1969 Woodstock Festival in the Tim Hardin Band, as well as Carnegie Hall that year. But I've done hundreds of other gigs since then, including recordings, film, and video.
I am almost entirely self-taught, and I have made it my method to learn only the music I love the most. This has been my motivation and it has never failed me. I perform often and have written a yet-unpublished book of some of my guitar music, notably in the Ragtime or Stride style. I use classical, steel, and electric guitars in my performances and recordings.
