SORT BY Relevancy
Like many guitarists, I grew up listening to classic Rock and Blues. And I still love those styles of music.
But it’s the improvisation I really love, and that’s what drew me to Jazz.
My love of Jazz has taken me from a small town in Canada around the globe. I was able to study at three of the top Jazz programs in the world.
Starting with McGill University, then Western Michigan, and finishing with a Doctorate in Jazz Guitar Performance from the University of Illinois (UIUC).
It’s also allowed me to teach over 5000 Jazz guitar lessons. My students have ranged from complete beginners, all the way to Professors of Jazz at NYU, and everything in between.
I’ve also taught Jazz guitar, popular music, and music business at Western Illinois University, Western Michigan University, University of Illinois, Carleton University (Canada), Concordia University (Canada), The Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory, University of Ouro Preto (Brazil), University of Sao Joao Del Rei (Brazil), University of Juiz de Fora (Brazil), Leeds College of Music (UK), and the University of Chester (UK).
My love of Jazz has also enabled me to play over 2000 gigs in 8 countries. These gigs run from mostly empty coffee shops, to sold out solo concerts.
I’ve even shared the stage with Jazz legends such as Randy Brecker, Stefon Harris, and Slide Hampton.
Some of my favorite gigs include shows at the Lincoln Center, International Association for Jazz Education Conference, NuJazz Festival (Brazil), Savassi Jazz Festival (Brazil), and International Jazz Day Festival (Nepal).
Jazz has been in my life for 20 years, and every day I’m glad I found this great music.
