I've been honing my musical skills for well over 20 years, and I'm willing to put them to use, provided the price is right. I'm available for all kinds of events — parties, weddings, etc. — and can even learn parts if you need a hand on stage or in the studio. I play the piano, guitar, bass, drums, and sing as well. I'm comfortable playing across many different genres in addition to improvising if necessary. 


Good musicians are hard to come by, particularly those with such adaptability. Take a listen to a few of my demos above, then let me know what sort of project you need me to help you with.

Music lessons are often more productive when you learn from a professional. I've got the experience to provide the best in private music instruction, having studied music at Hampton University and going on to "make noise" as a freelance performer and educator at private academies ever since.

 

I've graced the stage with big bands, rock groups, funky ensembles, and even a metal trio (Throwdown Syndicate); I bring that experience into every lesson, combining technical training with the knowledge of what it takes to be a gigging musician. I teach beginner to advanced sessions for piano, guitar, bass, drums, and voice. Prices are as follows...

  • $ 15 for a 15-minute lesson
  • $ 25 for a 30-minute lesson
  • $ 35 for a 45-minute lesson
  • $ 45 for a 60-minute lesson

Drop me a line to schedule a trial lesson. If it turns out that learning music is for you, we can work out a schedule to have you continue with weekly training sessions.

Do you need some amazing photos that capture the essence of you and your band? Maybe some action-packed moments from your next live show? You'll need a photographer with a keen eye to stage the best images and quick reflexes to capture the action while it happens. As a formally-trained and experienced photographer, I've got you covered on both fronts. I've a penchant for seizing on those picture-perfect moments, especially ones that involve other musicians. I can also accommodate personal portraits, couples' shots, lifestyle photos, and the like. Photo sessions start at a minimum of 60-minutes and include at least 75 digital shots.
