I played some guitar as a little kid. Took a lesson when I was six.
They said, “Don’t bring him back.”
Took another lesson in high school—the guy was boring. But by then, I was playing every day and pretty much every day since.
I was a music major in college, then joined a rock musical called Stomp, in which I acted, played guitar, and sang and wrote songs. The show was produced by Joseph Papp and played Off-Broadway in New York for eight months before touring throughout Europe and playing in Paris, London, Amsterdam, Munich, Berlin, and many more.
That was pretty fun.
But once I started teaching, I discovered that it was my calling.
I taught in Austin, Texas at Austin City Music for ten years, then moved to Houston and taught at Rockin’ Robin for about another ten years. Now I teach private lessons in Montrose.
Besides teaching, I have played in a classic rock band called The deadBeats and an acoustic group called The Aficionados. You can find me playing original tunes at EQ Heights on the second Saturday of every month—I'd love to see you sometime.
Now, let’s have some fun with that guitar.
