ABOUT

I have been playing guitar since 1971. I started out as a folkie, then rocker, and finally as a jazzer. I have worked as a sideman for theme parks in Florida, the U.S. Navy as a rated guitarist, Christian Praise bands and I am currently a music teacher in Virginia Beach, VA. I double on viola, cornet, and all the fretted string instruments including bass guitar. I can sing various styles and can sing any part. I have had experience singing in barbershop quartets.
