I have been teaching for 40+ years beginning with banjo and over the years adding guitar and mandolin. I moved to North Carolina in 1993 to work as banjoist for the Shady Grove Band. I lived in NC and performed professionally for 15 years with my groups Wiffer Creek and Lonesome Moon. We performed throughout NC, VA, and SC until physical issues prompted a return to CA.
I offer guitar, mandolin, and banjo lessons each from beginning through advanced. Foundational music theory is taught at the onset and often referred to throughout the process. Ear training is achieved through the practice of singing what we play. Timing is emphasized.
