I have been playing for twenty years and have been teaching full time for the last six years. My studies have taken me to the Hartford Conservatory and Western Connecticut State University as a jazz performance major. I have studied privately with Joe Beck,Chris Morrison and Dave Dana. I also studied under guitarist/composer Jamie Begian at West Conn. In addition I have been fortunate to have attended master classes with Robben Ford and Pat Martino.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
