As I roam the country sharing the gift of old-time music, I'm reminded of the old proverb, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." It's in this spirit that I'm pleased to provide a selection of workshops and private lessons to aspiring musicians.

Private Lessons

For individuals who prefer a customized, one-on-one tutelage, I also provide private lessons via Skype. Individuals willing to travel and want private lessons, i live in Sheboygan, WI. I offer 2-3 day intensives for instruction, which is usually 2 hours in the a.m. and 2 hours in the p.m. each day. Students lodge in a nearby hotel and booking for these intensives are usually a few months prior to the scheduled dates. Drop me a line.
