I teach out of Sandy Springs and Roswell, GA; as well as giving in-home lessons in the East Cobb and North Fulton areas. If you can’t make it in person don’t worry, technology allows me to reach students worldwide. Online lessons are offered via ZOOM and SKYPE.  It’s my goal to help you reach YOUR musical goals.


I’ve been fortunate enough in my career to play on the stages of Carnegie Hall, The Grand Ole Opry, and The Ryman Auditorium.  My extensive training in a variety of musical systems has given me knowledge of both the formal and aural/folk systems. I specialize in Bluegrass, Jazz, and Popular Music.
