As a child I took 13 years of Piano lessons. I had a Jazz Piano Scholarship to the University of South Florida but did not finish due to working in the Entertainment industry. I moved from Florida to Nashville TN in 1985 and started touring with several Christian artists. by the early 90's I had my own studio and was starting to produce records for many Nashville Labels. As a Studio musicianarranger and vocalist I worked on over 200 projects that have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. Worked on over 25 Gold and Platinum RIAA certified records. I have won an Emmy for composing the Biography theme on A&E and also launched the History Channel by composing their network music logo. You can read all about my credits at the link given above. Basically I have over 25 years of vast experience in all fields of the Music Industry. From Music Directing national arena tours to music directing Television shows to writing and producing on Platinum selling and billboard charting songs. I am wanting to focus more of my time on mentoring and teaching using my experience and expertise.
Depending on what I am teaching, I like to access the student and see exactly what they are wanting to get out of the lessons. Then building on a foundation of solid theory training as well as physical training. I also like to use current music and sounds as a way to inspire the student to think outside the box. I pride myself in making the learning experience fun and practical. I share many years of tips and secrets I have ran across and mastered over the years. For me having different approaches taught to me at a young age really helped me become the musician I am today. From Theory, dexterity, arranging, chord progressions, composing, etc.
Vocally I like to teach more commercial approaches and help the student find who they are vocally. Help them bring out what is unique about them. From the basics of breathing techniques, warmups, placement, etc. To song performance, connecting with the audience, telling the story and performing authentically.
I have had the fortune to work with the best singers and musicians in the world. From Roy Orbison, Michael McDonald, CeCe Winans, Faith Evans, Syesha Mercado, Melinda Doolittle, Donna Summer and many more.
