I started playing guitar around 6 or 7 years of age. My parents bought me a guitar and lesson's around that time. I had a great teacher named Ed Chervansky. He taught me how to play blues music. Played with a few garage bands and friends, always honing my skill's and working on what my teacher taught me. After high school I decided to get serious about music. I went to a small music school called Five Towns College and ended up with a degree in jazz performance and music education. Since then I have been performing solo acoustically or with my trio. I cover and write in a bunch of styles. Blues, rock, funk, soul, folk, jazz, r&b, gospel, roots... Always practicing always learning always exploring the gift of music. Early on I was teaching and traveling to clients homes. Mostly in Easton, Fairfield and Westport. My wife and I moved to Bethel in 2001. I started teaching guitar and piano out of my house. Then two beautiful children, Jacob and Amelia came along and blessed us. I decided to rent my own studio in cozy down town Bethel. I love to teach and perform. I've been gifted in that respect. I love to see progress in my students. I love the look on a students face when they realize they're making music for the first time! It's exciting, rewarding and fun! Learning an instrument is a process that takes time, discipline and dedication. My students are sick of hearing me say "practice, practice, practice" but it is the simple truth to success. I always tell everyone, 20 minutes of daily practice for a few years can bring a lifetime of reward!
