Music, a Gift for Life!

What can I say? Music is my passion. It has helped me celebrate the great and joyous times in my life and it has helped me through some really tough times. Songwriting has allowed me to express my heart as well as my sense of humor, while performing gives me the chance to interact with people in a way that can only be experienced from the stage.

The thought that I can help my students tap into that is very inspiring, to me.

In addition to teaching  I am also a performing musician, songwriter and registered artist with BMI. Over the past 20+ years, I have performed in Praise, Blues/Rock bands, duos, jam bands and as a solo act. After retiring, in 2009, from my business career, I have been pursuing my passion of music full time…. and believe me, this passion for music is contagious!

I offer Private and Group Lessons in Acoustic and Electric Guitar,as well as Live Performance Techniques, for musicians who want to move their music from the living room to the stage.

There are several ways to fit my Guitar Lessons into your budget and schedule. Check out my Classes & Tuition Page for some of the options available.

I welcome the opportunity to help you reach your dreams... with music.
