Learning to play an instrument is one of the most rewarding of creative endeavors. I foster a relaxed and enjoyable teaching approach that will hopefully result in a solid technique that will allow creativity to develop. I do recommend the practice of certain scales and chords everyday, balanced with repertoire to put these scales and chords to use in real songs and melodies.
I have taught at Elon University since 2003. I am continuing to do this, and I currently teach private guitar lessons, coach the jazz combos, teach jazz improvisation classes, and lecture in jazz history. In addition to this, I perform regularly in the Triad and the Triangle with lots of musicians and groups. My playing has been heard on 91.5 WUNC, UNC-TV, and on the recording, 'If These Songs Could Talk' by the Dave Fox Group.
