More About Me

My dad bought me my first guitar when I was 6 and got me started playing folk fingerstyle. My first real teacher, Mr Tom Anthony, was a classical guitarist and got me interested in that style- so much so that I majored in music in college. I then stared teaching at a local music store. One day the owner asked me if I taught banjo. I said, "No, I've never even played one." He handed me a banjo and said "Take this home and learn it because I have a bunch of banjo students and no teacher." So I did. Over the years my love for the banjo and for traditional music has deepened as I have explored other styles like Irish trad and classic style, and lately have been playing some clawhammer as well. I don't teach any particular method; instead I cater to each student's individual strengths and weaknesses and their personal goals.
