I am a classical guitarist, lutenist, and music teacher living in the neighborhood of Kew Gardens in Queens, New York. I perform as a soloist, with my trio, Third Person Narrative, with soprano Kathleen O'Rourke, and as a continuo player on period instruments with Stony Brook Baroque Players and Sinfonia Spirituosa based in Sacramento, California.
I currently teach from my home studio in Queens, at New York City Guitar School, Brooklyn Guitar School and the Great Neck Music Conservatory. I accept students at all levels and ages. My approach to teaching is extremely adaptable, yet provides an effective structure for continual progress at every level.
I hold a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Stony Brook University, where I focused on rarely performed works from the 17th through 21st centuries on theorbo, 19th century guitar and modern guitar. I am currently writing a music theory book for young guitarists and I update my website weekly. Please check back soon for more information.
