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, Norwell, and beyond.

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

I suspect I’ve always been a musician since the very beginning.  I have always 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, throughout high school and college, I developed a core of artists that still remain my all time favorites to this day!  Genesis, Yes, Rush, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Led Zeppelin, Sting, U2, R.E.M., Paul Simon, The Who, and Steely Dan all are my heroes.

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

Starting with a nylon string acoustic, I then got a steel string acoustic, then a twelve string, all the way up to owning my very first electric when I was 18. My word of advice is to start on an acoustic, not an electric!  It’s an easier transition.
