What to Expect
Many audience members have commented about beauty of the tone quality and phrasing of my performances. As a classically trained player from an excellent guitar program I pride myself on providing a world class "classical music experience". I take my profession very seriously and offer nothing less than a piece of "art" in the form of music. This holds true for all of the material I play, from Bach to the Beatles.
