More About Me

I play a number of old time banjo styles. These include clawhammer, "Seeger style" up picking, thumb lead, index lead, 3 finger, and individual styles such as Dock Boggs' 3 finger style.

I teach banjo, piano, guitar, mandolin, at Allegro Music Service in California, MD. I am a founding teacher (classical guitar) in St. Mary's County for the Carnegie Hall/Royal Conservatory Achievement Program. Before moving to Southern Maryland, I spent 4 years on the faculty of Salisbury University's music department, where I taught courses in ear training/sightsinging, music theory, world music, American folk music, music appreciation, and applied classical guitar and wrote program notes for the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra.

I have a Bachelor Degree in Classical Guitar, minor in piano from the conservatory at Shenandoah University, where I also studied the Renaissance lute. My graduate studies are in ethnomusicology and historical musicology. I have presented research at the annual meeting of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) and at forums at the University of Tennessee.
