I perform regularly around Los Angeles in various settings - Jazz and classical music, Concerts, Theaters, Night Clubs.

Philosophy on Music and Music Education

I enjoy teaching and I feel it is a natural companion to performing. Both playing music and teaching others to play music is quite rewarding. Teaching and performing are part of the same process.

Other Teaching Experiences

I am an adjunct faculty member at Occidental College in the Music Department where I teach private instruction in guitar. I have also taught at the Thornton School of Music at USC.
