I started my music journey early in life. It has been a great trip. I love to pass the information of a lifetime along to the next generation of guitar and bass guitar heros. The real ones not the video waste of timers.

Music helps in many facets of life like concentration, confidence, self accomplishment, public speaking, leadership skills, not to mention how much fun it is

Music is pure joy. It is the sound of love. Music can take you back like a time machine. It is a sure way to beat stress and feel pure happiness. A fun escape from reality. Some folks never get to experience the joy of making music because they think it is too hard or that they will have to learn to read music. No music to read and fun is guaranteed.

I am very motivated to help you achive your music goals. Let's rock.
