Music – Guitar
I have 40+ years of playing experience, as well as 30+ years experience teaching private lessons. I have studied at the Crane School of Music (State University of New York, Potsdam), Mt. Hood Community College and Portland State University.
For the past 20 years I have also performed extensively as a solo artist and with my band. My debut CD bossamba, was released in 2000 and received rave reviews.
I have taught guitar to adults in my home studio and at Artichoke Music since 1983. In 2003, I became an instructor at the Multnomah Arts Center and have enjoyed teaching children and mentoring young talent there for 10 years. Recently, I created a program called “Fun with Brazilian Music: Brazilian Rhythms.” This program is the first in a series that I am creating under the umbrella name “SoundZ Fun!” SoundZ Fun! is a series of all-age, interactive events that inspire learning and fun through music and sound.
