30+ Years Teaching Experience

I have a BA in Ethnomusicology and certificates in music, performance and coaching from the New England Conservatory of Music, Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music, the Conservatory at Rivers and Hampshire College, with advanced coursework in composition, jazz theory, ethnomusicology and composition from Amherst College, UMass Amherst and Mt Holyoke College.

I’m the President and a co-founder of Mandolin New England, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to mandolin and mandolin orchestra education and performances in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Learn more about Mandolin New England here. I play with fiddle and mandolin with Celticado, a traditional Celtic wedding band: Celticado.band.

In 1995, I took a certification course at GCC in Novell LANs and in 1997, coursework in HTML, Web Design and built my first website. Since then, I’ve designed/developed dozens of websites for a variety of clients including musicians, bands, orchestras, restaurants, caterers, and many more. Here’s a list of some of them.
