Teacher & Musician

Bringing a lifetime of joy & experience to instructing and playing guitar


I understand that it is intimidating to begin the journey to learning guitar.

I am here to help.

It is my passion to guide others to discovering the joy of playing music.  I have a lifetime of experience to offer both as a professional musician and  guitar coach.

  • Over 30 years experience teaching guitar in Nashville and Santa Barbara.
  • Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) Honors Graduate
  • Belmont University Honors Music Graduate

I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of students over that past 30 years learn how to play guitar.
