    My Teaching Background
    I have studied music at the University of Eastern Kentucky and the University of Puget Sound.
    I've been on the stage since 1981 and began doing session recordings in 1982.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    My main teaching philosophy is to never talk or speak above the heads of my students and make sure they are understanding everything clearly. My approach is to come up with a game plan to help you reach your highest goals and dreams, whether you want to be a stage or session recording musician, or whether it's just for your own self enjoyment. I like to focus on proper techniques that are required in the professional music industry, for today's highly competitive scene, and give confidence to make your highest expectations become reality.
