Guitar Lessons

I have been professionally teaching guitar for the past 6 years. I have guided numerous students with varying ages and skill levels towards their goals of becoming more proficient guitarists and more educated musicians.

Each lesson is tailored specifically to the learning style and needs of each student; I do not believe in a rigid, standardized, one-size-fits-all lesson plan.

I teach at Schoolhouse Music between Bloomsburg and Danville, along with doing house calls.

Feel free to contact me for further information or to set up a lesson time.

Audio Engineering/Sound Design

I offer professional audio recording, mixing and mastering, along with creative services, such as beat production, creative consulting and sound design for film and theatre.

I have been recording EPs and albums for various artists around the NEPA region for the past 4 years, including The Mighty Susquehannas, Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, Alexis P. Suter and Dylan Jane.

I also work closely with The Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble as an engineer, sound designer, composer and performer.  Recent productions have included A Very Special Christmas Special, Stinky Cheese Man, Twas the Night Before Christmas, and Romeo & Juliet and Gunpowder Joe.

Acoustic Sound Panels

I build aurally effective and visually appealing acoustic absorption panels for noisy, distracting or otherwise poor acoustical environments.

I have constructed and installed acoustic panels for the following businesses:

Tuckey Hill Brewing Company

Balzano’s Italian Kitchen

West End Ale Haus

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church

The Blind Pig Kitchen

Panels are hand-crafted with high quality rigid fiberglass and wrapped in burlap (custom colors are available).

Classical Guitar

I studied classical guitar under Matthew Slotkin, acclaimed guitar professor at Bloomsburg University, for 5 years during my collegial training at BU. Having played numerous weddings and other ceremonies throughout my career, I am able to provide a personalized musical backdrop to any occasion.

My repertoire consists of a range of standard classical pieces by composers such as Bach, Chopin and Schubert, as well as more contemporary pieces by Roland Dyens and Leo Brouwer. I also have transcribed numerous classic songs for the classical guitar, such as “Here Comes the Sun,” “Faithfully,” and “I Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You.”

Audio and Video clips coming soon.
