Originally a classical guitarist, I now find myself exploring the world of the lute and other period instruments, as well as flamenco guitar and musicology. As Adjunct Faculty at Front Range Community College I teach Music Appreciation, Music Theory, and Classical Guitar lessons, while maintaining a private guitar studio.
I am a Doctoral Candidate in Music History at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, and write CD reviews for The Lute Society of America Quarterly.
I accept all levels of students, from absolute beginners to those preparing for college auditions. For information about lessons or my student guitar ensemble (Fort Collins Classical Guitar Collective) please refer to the headings to the left.
If you’re here to read about the musician’s repetitive stress disorder, FOCAL DYSTONIA, and try the retraining exercises that have helped me recover 80% of my skills, go to the heading to the left. There I have organized all the lessons and blog posts in a useful order.
Below is a website which features my blog. It contains the most comprehensive and impartial compilation of information about focal dystonia on the internet. Be sure to check it out!
