About Me

I've been playing guitar for about 14 years and have performed both nationally and internationally. I currently teach guitar 4 nights a week and play in various bands.

Improvisation

For a long time, I did nothing but improvise. I would write songs on the fly and finish them in one night. All of the parts were made up on the spot, with no calculation. I played in various jam bands and honed my skills writing spontaneous music of all styles. By fulfilling my need to jam for so long, I've learned to appreciate the craft of songwriting. Though everything I do is heavily improvisational, I've come to better appreciate the art of composition.
