Classical Guitar

I will come to your wedding, party or corporate event and provide live entertainment. A classical guitar always adds a touch of elegance and my repertiore covers a wide range of classical pieces, popular selections and jazz standards. I require a 50% deposit on the signing of a contract with the remaining 50% due on the date of the performance. I am always happy to learn new material to play for your event as long as I am given enough advance notice. I have a small amplifier for the guitar that is unobtrusive, yet enables the music to be heard at reasonable levels outdoors or in noisy circumstances. If you are looking for guitar and vocal selections, or guitar and flute music, I can help arrange that with other area musicians I have performed with.

Music Instruction

I teach guitar, banjo, mandolin and electric bass in my studio. Though I can help with most any style, my strengths are in bluegrass, jazz, fingerstyle guitar, and other acoustic styles of music. Guitar, bass and mandolin students learn how to read standard notation, and everyone learns elements of music theory, ear training, and improvisation. If you are serious about taking your playing to the next level, send me an email.

Recording and Engineering Services

I have a small studio suitable for medium sized acoustic groups. I can track 16 analog channels at a time into Apple Logic through 2 Metric Halo 2882 firewire interfaces and 16 channels of Mackie control. I can also come to you to produce on-site multitrack recording, or you can hire my expertise to help you produce your project with your own equipment. Please send me an email about what you need for your project, and I'll let you know how I can help you make it a great one.

Bluegrass band

Bluegrass bands can make any party exciting but doing it right takes musicians who really know how to play. I have been playing bluegrass banjo , guitar and mandolin for nearly 40 years and have played with some of the D.C. area's best bluegrass musicians. I competed in the 1991 National 5-string banjo championship and was featured in Flatpicking guitar magazine. If you need a great bluegrass band, you have come to the right place.
