I am an accomplished musician who plays, teaches and performs on the banjo, mandolin, dobro, fiddle and guitar. I have been providing aspiring musicians in the Dayton Ohio area with private banjo, guitar, fiddle and mandolin lessons for more than 15 years. My teaching style is patient, personalized and professional. I enjoy working with students of all ages, levels and backgrounds. I offer both private lessons and group lessons and workshops.  Playing with others can be an important part of both enjoying and progrepatcompilation300x250ssing on your instrument. With this in mind, each Tuesday I host a bluegrass group lesson where beginning and intermediate players can learn the ins and outs of playing in an acoustic jam.This class is held at Hauer Music 6-8pm Tuesdays.  I am currently teaching classes for small groups of students to learn to play together as a band or in a more focused setting with musicians playing complimentary instruments.

In addition to my teaching activities I am also an active performer. I am a founding and active member of the bluegrass / newgrass band Mad River Railroad .
