BIO:

 Born  in  Hollywood  California, the son  of  a  successful  studio  musician,  I  grew  up  with  the  industry  all around  me.   I began studying  music  at  the age of  6  and  knew  I  was  going  to  join  the  profession  when  I wrote my first song at the age of 12.
From  then  on  I  absorbed  everything  I  could  about  every  instrument  I  could  get  my  hands  on,  every  facet  of  music  theory,  and every  facet  of  the  ever changing  industry.
I’ve  performed  a  multitude  of  styles  from  pop  to  jazz  to  funk  to Celtic.
I’ve  recorded, mixed, and mastered  hundreds  of  projects  (professional  and personal).  I’ve  charted  countless chord  charts,  lead  sheets,  piano  sheet music,  guitars/bass/ukulele/banjo/mandolin  tabs  and  notation, drum parts,  full  band  and  full  orchestra  arrangements. Further more, I’ve taught both private  and  group  lessons for nearly a decade.
My  father  once  said  to  me  “You  have  to  do  at  least  5  different  jobs  to make  it  in  the  music  industry.”    I  do  18.
  • I  teach  6  different  instruments.
  • I  teach  music  theory  (7),
  • audio  recording  (8),
  • mixing  (9),
  • and  mastering  (10).
  • I  play  solo  piano  gigs  (11)
  • and  multiple  instruments  in  bands  (12).
  • I  direct  bands  at  my local music studio currently and  in  the  past  for  other  clients  (13).
  • I  arrange  music  for  clients  (14).
  • I  run  a  home  recording  studio  (15).
  • I  write  music  for  television  (16).
  • I  notate  and  tab  sheet  music  for  clients  and  students  (17).
  • I  write  and  self-publish  music  books  (18).
I’m  a  man  of  many  hats.   Let  me  know  which  one  I  need.
