ABOUT

I was a professional musician, In a previous life. Now that I am retired, I am getting back in the game; ready to become a full-time working musician. I am also interested in finding study and jamming partners to learn and analyze tunes.

I have already resumed the teaching part of the mix by taking private students and hosting/organizing the

http://www.meetup.com/LearnGuitarAtlanta and the http://www.meetup.com/LearnJazzGuitarAtlanta

groups. My private student teaching profile is at

https://takelessons.com/profile/ron_a_ron .

Ancient credits include Musak recording, various commercial recordings ( mostly TV ads), the Governor's State University Jazz Band and Ensembles (won 9 of 12 available awards at the Notre Dame Jazz Festival, played the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), lots of weddings, club dates, dinners and such.

I have done studio work, in the past, but not in recent years, so I checked no on the form.

So here I am: Just getting my playing and reading chops up to snuff and waiting to be called upon.
