I love music and it's the principal channel through which I carry out my purpose in life and try to make a little positive contribution. I'm a professional musician in several areas: classical guitar (my principal training), composition, orchestral/choral conducting, organ, church music, and therapeutic music. In this website you can watch my music videos, listen to my CD's and buy them, see samples of my compositions, and buy scores and guitar tabs of my compositions and arrangements.

I live in Charlottesville, Virginia, and I perform regularly in Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, North Carolina and West Virginia. I also travel for performances anywhere in the USA and abroad. What else do I do?
Music director and organist at the Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Charlottesville, VA.
Teach guitar at Sweet Briar College and Randolph College.
Play therapeutic guitar music for patients at the UVA Medical Center.
Teach private guitar lessons in my guitar studio in Charlottesville.
Compose music and sell it in this website as PDF.

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
