What to Expect
Holding an Advanced Diploma in Applied Music from Mohawk College, specializing in jazz guitar I also have experience in rock, country, jazz, and classical. I am happy to accommodate a song or instrument request. Please allow at least 2 weeks notice. When booking, please let me know of the specific song(s) or instrument you’d like. Expect me to arrive about 30 minutes ahead of time so I will have time to meet you, and also set up. If you’d like for me to arrive earlier, you may request so but because of the extra time there may be an additional fee. Depending on the duration of the performance, I may take a 10-15 minute break every hour or so.
