National and international touring performer and workshop leader with over 30 years of dedicated private lesson experience, teaching mandolin, guitar, autoharp, mountain dulcimer, and ukulele. Learn from tab, note reading and by ear in a wide range of styles, especially old-time, Americana, folk and Celtic. Past appearances include MBOTMA festivals, the Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield), Sore Fingers Week (England), the Augusta Heritage Center (West Virginia), Swannanoa Gathering (North Carolina). Instructor locally at Homestead Pickin' Parlor, West Bank School of Music, and Chanson Music Academy. My approach is to help you achieve your musical goals with direct 1:1 coaching that gives you the feedback and direction that you can't get from just watching videos.

I enjoy teaching the 5-string banjo in a variety of styles from bluegrass to rock and roll, from beginner to advanced students. I play with the band The High 48s and have taught banjo workshops at the MBOTMA August Festival, Blue Ox Music Festival, International Music Camp, Missouri River Bluegrass Festival and more. I've been teaching private lessons for over a decade and love to teach and help students unlock their creative potential.
