Vintage Blues Guitarist & Teacher

I am a vintage blues guitarist and teacher from Floyd, VA.

I have been a professional musician all of my adult life and currently teach 45 students each week and perform as a solo and with various duos and bands in and around my hometown of Floyd, VA.
I believe that music is a language and, like everyone's first spoken language, it is best learned in a natural, instinctual and intuitive way and is used to communicate emotions, tell stories and exchange ideas. Music, at its best, is a collaborative effort, not a competition and it is best cultivated in that spirit.
I teach in the lesson studio and from the bandstand. Learning to play music and sharing it makes us all happier and healthier. It also builds community and encourages curiosity and tolerance, helping make the world a better place.
