We can be grateful. We want to recognize and thank our fans and followers for such thoughtful outpouring of messages & concerns, and also for the financial support through lessons, donations, and merchandise sales. Our gratitude is overflowing. This is a strange time for us all as each day of this pandemic unfolds. There are so many unknowns. We know the ripple effect has deep implications, and is affecting everybody. We know many people in our communities are getting laid off, or aren’t able to work for some reason or another. Our hearts go out to everyone, especially those hit the hardest. We musicians find ourselves in the unusual position of not being able to do our jobs. So we are getting creative, and offering online lessons, live streaming concerts from our living rooms, and hoping for the best. I think the most unnerving part is that we don't know how long until we can all go back to work. On the bright side, we are at home, it is spring, and maybe in some way, having a windfall of time where we have all slowed down will spur everyone to connect more with those closest to them, write more letters, make art, play outside, catch up on home projects, put in gardens, and play music. It is definitely an exceptional time to connect with gratitude and joy in our daily lives. And smile. Even if you don't feel like it. It's still good for you:) It is all too easy to get bogged down with the overall gravity of the worldwide situation we are facing. We all need to keep up with the news and what is happening in our communities and we all need to shut it off for a time and do things for joy. Please take care of yourselves and those in need during this trying time.

I am offering private online lessons for singing, rhythm guitar, song repertoire, and general life guidance. I make my living as a professional touring musician, and most of us touring musicians find ourselves in the very unusual position of not being able to do our jobs at the moment. But I am looking at the bright side, and enjoying some rare time at home to work creatively on music, and get the garden in! Keep your chins up and go out into the sunshine! And keep on picking! Music is healing for us all.
If you would like to book your very own live stream online concert with us, please schedule here or email for more info. In addition to guitar and singing lessons, I am is also offering "short & sweet" 20 minute One-on-One Song Repertoire Sessions, as well as a Song-A-Week Repertoire Builder Subscription as a fun way to stay inspired at home.
If you don't find an available lesson slot that works for your schedule or time zone, email me to find a time that works. Also, I want these lessons to be accessible to all in this trying time, so if you find you are unable to afford these rates, please email me so we can figure out a price that works for you. Thank you.
