I've been a guitarist for over 40 years and playing at weddings and special events regularly for the last eight years. I am a fingerstyle guitarist and play a variety of styles including classical, light jazz, Celtic, popular tunes, and even Hawaiian slack key. I can create arrangements for special songs or learn requested songs for your special day. I can accompany vocalists or play with other instrumentalists. I also play hammered and mountain dulcimer.
I have my own gear and take pride in easy, non-obtrusive set-ups and departures. Solo guitar adds a touch of elegance to any wedding or special event. Let me help you add the beauty of music to your special day.
Price Range: $200 and up. Please contact to discuss details.
I was a teacher for 26 years. When I took early retirement in 2005, I began my career in music. I teach guitar, dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, and ukulele at Musicology of Newnan, and I regularly perform at weddings and special events. A fingerstyle guitarist creates full arrangements of songs that sound like a mini-orchestra with melody, bass, and harmony all at the same time. My music is the perfect complement for elegant weddings and events or less formal outdoor occasions. I have invested in excellent instruments and equipment and am always prepared for whatever challenges a given event might bring. I have accompanied vocalists, played with violinists and recorder players, among other instrumentalists, and I can write arrangements for requested songs.
I grew up learning how to create special events, from the floral arrangements to the right flatware, and these early experiences have influenced my professionalism as a musician. I take great pride in entering a venue, setting up, performing professionally, then slipping out without causing a distraction.
I consider it an honor to be able to help set the right mood for every wedding or event where I perform and to make the day as special as possible for the participants. Thank you for your consideration.
