SOLO PERFORMER • GUITAR INSTRUCTION

Simply put...

I’m a vocalist/guitarist who performs solo at many a venue
in greater Boston.

 

I also teach guitar and general music on the south shore in the towns of Scituate, Hingham, Marshfield, Cohasset and Norwell.

Being a freelance musician means doing what I love to do; work closely with people, share my knowledge of music and technique, and giving my best efforts in self-expression.

I suspect I’ve always been a musician since the very beginning.  I listened, I mean REALLY listened to music and studied the shapes and forms of how it affects us in an infinite amount of ways.

My earliest influences began with The Beatles and Irish folk music.  The brilliance of the melodies always seemed to catch my attention at any given moment.

Later on through high school and college, I developed a core of artists that still remain my all time favorites to this day!  Yes, Genesis, Rush, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Led Zeppelin, Sting, U2, R.E.M., Paul Simon, The Who and Steely Dan all are my heros.

I started playing guitar at age 11, with lessons given to me on my 12th birthday.  From that day on, a guitar would be in my hands for probably 360 days/year.

I began on a nylon string acoustic, then steel string acoustic, then twelve string, not to own my very first electric until I was 18.  Word of advice is start on an acoustic, not an electric!  It’s an easier transition.
