I've been playing guitar and teaching all my life. I started playing at age 9 and my first student lived across the street. I have performed all over the USA as well as in Canada, the UK, and Guatemala. I'm currently performing with the Ronni Ward Band in the Kansas City area as well as serving on guitar at my church.
My studies have included sessions with Joe Pass, Brian Harman, and Tommy Tedesco among others. I earned my Bachelor's of Special Studies degree from Cornell College and a Vocational With Honors certificate from Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT).
I have taught in music stores, my home, students' homes, and at church. I served as an instructor for the summer program at GIT while attending school there (1989). I also taught private students and rock ensemble at Austin Community College (1990 - 1993). Currently I instruct middle school students through my church's Worship Studio program.
