I've been teaching guitar at the Community College of Southern Nevada since 2000. I have over 25 years of private teaching experience. I have performed with Sandy Duncan, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Art Van Damme, Walt Weiskopf, Marlena Shaw, Ed Soph, and many others. I played many festivals, such as Spirit of Music Festival (San Francisco, CA), Fremont Street Jazz Festival (Las Vegas, NV), and Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival (Moscow, ID).
I hold Master's Degree in Jazz Studies from UNLV. I am a published author of the "Beginning Guitar" book (Kendall Hunt Publishing). I have recorded two CD's with my Jazz group the Shapiro Project. I was awarded two Fellowships in Jazz Composition from NAC and an Honorable Mention from Billboard Songwriting Contest, as well as numerous ASCAPlus Awards.
