ABOUT

I am a lifelong career musician,having played guitar in numerous jazz,rock, and funk bands. I read notation,play piano and bass,and I also studied classical guitar for four years. I've been teaching music privately all my professional life,and currently I play rhythm guitar for the Django Reinhardt style swing band "Jazz Gitan". Also,I am an endorsee for Lunch Box Amplifiers out of Berkeley CA., which is a groovy little boutique amplifier company. Been using their Acoustic Lunchbox amp for 5 or so years now without a hitch!
