B i o g r a p h y

Music has always been in my life.  My mother was a concert pianist and my father was a self-taught jazz pianist. My younger brother Steve is world renowned as a guitarist and teacher; my youngest brother Will is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the life and work of Woody Guthrie.  There was always music in our house.

 

I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Music Education from Montclair State College in New Jersey. I have over 40 years’ experience teaching music to students of all ages, styles and levels of expertise. I am a certified music teacher in both South Carolina and New Jersey, with a Master's in Education Leadership.



In addition to teaching, I’ve performed in coffee houses, concerts, churches, bars, festivals, living rooms and back porches throughout the Mid-Atlantic states. I’ve recorded three CD’s for release and sale – they’re available on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby.com.



I am really fortunate - I've been able to make a living doing something I love every day, and still get to play the guitar!
