STYLE AND INFLUENCE

While I am well versed in the theory and performance of classical, rock, funk, reggae, latin, metal and jazz, jazz and rock music have become my forte. Over my career as a performer, I have had the pleasure of playing and composing for groups of all different styles. Currently I am the keyboardist and one of the composers for the Chico progressive rock group Clouds On Strings, experimental jazz group - Bogg and jam/funk band Swamp Zen.
 
For my students, my main objective is to get them comfortable with performance and then fill in the gaps with the theory behind what they are playing. I find by blending playing "by ear" and teaching theory, students have a deeper understanding of the theory in a more applicable sense.
