My musical journey began way back in the fourth grade which was…well, a long time ago. I started on the french horn which I still play to this day. It was in high school when I began experimenting with the trumpet and later the guitar. After high school I attended Temple University as a Jazz major in the very first class of the new jazz program. While at Temple I took a recording engineering class and which was a turning point. After 2 years at Temple I transferred to the Berklee College of Music and enrolled in the Music Production and Engineering program. Berklee is a great place to be for a young musician. Because my instrument major was french horn I had loads of opportunities to play much to the detriment of my regular classes.
It was at Berklee that I got interested in playing jazz guitar. It was a rough beginning because I wanted to sound like Wes Montgomery right away! After graduating Berklee I moved to New York City where I soon landed a job recording music for TV commercials. This was a great place to be for a young musician! That is until my desire to play guitar awoke again. From NYC I travelled to Los Angeles, CA and enrolled in GIT (Guitar Institute of Technology) which is now Musician’s Institute.
It was after settling in LA that I began playing harmonica. I was listening to a lot of Sonny Terry and it was at this time I discovered the great William Clarke. Wow! William Clarke and west coast guitarist Hollywood Fats became instant influences.
Fast forward a few years and I wrote my first book Christmas For Harmonica. I began teaching lessons and later after moving to the east coast I continued to teach private lessons on various instruments. At one point I was teaching 60 students a week! At the same time playing in several blues bands over the years.
A few more books followed for guitar and related instruments. I wrote two books for the National Guitar Workshop "Teach Yourself To Play Dobro" and "Teach Yourself To Play Pedal Steel Guitar".
While I like teaching private lessons in music stores I found that is very inefficient. I wanted to reach a wider audience and so here we are!
