At the age of 8, I picked up my first guitar at the home of a family friend. Every time we would visit, I would pull that instrument out and strum away singing songs that I had learned at school. Things didn’t sound the way I wanted them to sound, however. I knew that I was supposed to be doing something special with my hands that would make the instrument work with what I was trying to sing. Soooo … I asked my mom if I could take some guitar lessons! Thankfully she said yes, and even more thankfully, she found a wonderful teacher named Bill Munday who had two great strengths - he knew his instrument, and he knew how to teach it to others.
I spent six wonderful years with Bill and grew to love our time together. One day, to my great sadness he turned to me and said, “I have nothing left to teach you. It’s time you moved on to work with someone else.” Since then, I’ve had many teachers in many parts of the world, but it was Bill that first set me on my path with this instrument. As a teacher myself now, it is my great privilege to continue the tradition that Bill passed on to me and to instill a lifelong love of this instrument into my students.
Since working with Bill, I’ve studied styles as varied as jazz, folk and rock, and traveled to Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, China and Ghana to live, teach and learn. I’ve continued to share music with others through recording projects, live music performances and as both a solo artist and band leader. I also write, arrange and produce my own music, in addition to contributing to the creation of music for others. I’m a founding member of local group “The Puffball Collective” as well as band leader of Organic and Fat Grass Corduroy.
