About me

I have a BA and certificates in music from the New England Conservatory of Music, Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music and Hampshire College. I opened my studio in 1986, and have been teaching adults and teens how to play beautiful music since.


Over a decade ago, I started a YouTube channel to upload mandolin and fiddle lessons for students. Since then, I've contributed hundreds of lessons, workshops and examples of tunes for students, clients, fans and friends. Subscribe here
