Guitar is my main instrument. I find that my musical studies and my working experience of over a decade have preparred me for a wide variety of musical settings on various instruments. I show up preparred, on time, with great gear and I am a very easy going guy.
I have been playing music since I was a young child. I started on piano at age 7 and picked up the guitar at age 9. I have played in a number of different professional groups ranging in style from country, blues, rock, pop, flamenco, jazz, classical ensembles and orchestras, and solo classical guitar. I hold a bachelors of music degree from Middle Tennessee State University and a masters of music degree from the University of Denver, both in classical guitar performance. I can read charts and arrange music for various ensembles; I studied arranging techniques for three years under Dr. Cedric Dent, member of the 10 time grammy award winning gospel group, Take 6.
