What to Expect
I hold myself to the highest degrees of excellence and am constantly striving to improve my abilities. Wether I am performing solo guitar, or original songs, or covers of popular music you can expect to have a very high level of skill to please any audience. My music is multi-generational as well with something for everyone to enjoy.
I am a professional musician offering services in performance, instruction and composition. I hold a bachelors degree in classical guitar and am currently studying for my masters at Portland State University. I specialize in solo instrumental guitar in the styles of classical, jazz and contemporary. I also perform original and popular songs as a one man band using looping pedals, vocal harmonizers, and a synthesizer guitar that can sound like any instrument. I can simulate the sound of a full band using these effects. I also have access to a wide range of top notch musicians and am able to put together small to medium size ensembles to in almost any style (string trios, jazz quartet, etc.) to suit any occasion. An event planner who chooses my service can expect the highest professionalism and dedication. I am always on time and prepared and I have never had a dissatisfied customer.
Additional Booking Notes
Generally all I require for a performance is an outlet for power, i bring everything else. If no power is available I can play on a batteyr powered amp but the volume levels are limited.
I can learn almost any piece of music in any style if given adequate time. My current set list contains over 5 hours of music. I have original tunes, solo guitar pieces and popular tunes in different styles. Please feel free to inquire if you have a piece/s you would like me to learn.
