"I teach you to take care of yourself. My goal, is to have you be able to thrive in any musical setting. I put forward a strong emphasis on Time, Phrasing & Technique. Good sight reading skills are one of the byproducts of my course. I have many successful students from over the years. Some have gone on to sign record contracts with major labels. I have students come to me as working professional musicians ( i.e. Gigging players, High School band teachers, US Navy, USMC, bass players etc.) or as beginners.

The atmosphere in which you study is very important. I try to maintain a neutral environment where you can develop patterns of success. I tailor the presenting of materials in a sequence that will have the most impact on a particular student. I teach via the internet, and my studio in Hawaii.

Teaching venue: home studio, internet, US mail.
