Classical, Spanish, and Contemporary. From Bach to Beatles!!
At age 11 my guitar studies began.
My first teacher Carlton Ziegler trained his students from The Berklee School of Music, William Leavitt, Modern Guitar Method Series.
On my 15th Birthday, I received an album of Andres Segovia.
When I first looked at the album cover I was disappointed.
"Who is this old man dressed in black stuffy suit holding a guitar".
After listening to the album, I was totally amazed.
I read the album cover several times , looking for the other artist names accompanying Segovia.
When I learned that it was Andres Segovia producing all those sounds himself, I knew then that I had to learn the Classical Guitar Technique.
I soon purchased my first nylon string guitar and began my studies with Tom Dushack, a graduate student from The New England Conservatory of Music.
After graduating high school , I felt the need to venture into the world a bit and leave Boston.
I studied then with Jeff Van, from the University Of Minnesota.
After a year of studies withVan, I moved to California and studied for a year with Rey De La Torre, not sure where to stabilize my roots , I moved back to Boston and studied with Bob Sullivan of The New England Conservatory.
Since 1982, I have been rooted in California.
My first Instrument, the Trumpet, In which I also teach today.
I also studied the Cello from the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Mass.
My performance have ranged from community Benefits, Formal Concerts, Restaurants, Coffee Houses, Sea tours, and Cable TV.
My Influences have been many, and of vast styles.
I have taught adult education and private lessons,since the age of eighteen.
