PERFORMER, COMPOSER, EDUCATOR
With the ongoing National Emergency, live performance events for March, 2020 have been postponed. It is the fervent hope of all of us in the music community that this will pass quickly, but for now the priority is everyone's health and safety.
Please continue to support your local musicians and venues in any way you can. I am available via Skype and Facetime to provide lessons in jazz theory and performance to musicians of all ages and levels.
Please check back regularly for updates and new content. I look forward to seeing you on-line and live in the near future.
For more details and a full list of upcoming performances see the Events page.
