5-STRING BANJO, BAGPIPES & MUSIC THEORY
Music has dogged me all my life and I am finally giving in.  I can't stop it.  It calls me.  I have to play.  I have to sing.

I minored in music in college so I know the theory behind what I play.  In college I played violin and piano.  Seven years ago I began playing the Great Highland Bagpipes.  I play pipes in a band in Vermont traveling and competing.  I am self-taught on guitar and five-string banjo, playing over 30 years, and these are what I perform on most these days along with singing.  In teaching I focus on finding the connections between what the student already knows and what they are learning.  I am an adult learner.

 

I have always been musical, singing all the time as a child.  I didn't get the instrument thing until I started discovering how tunes worked when I was about 20.  I realized after some trial and error that I could sound out tunes on a piano.  That led to the Appalachian Dulcimer which led me to the 5-string Banjo.  Then the guitar.  I was on a voyage of discovery.  I later added violin to my self-taught stable.  College and a minor in music with musical theater experiences to spice things up.  Later I took up the pipes.

I am the consummate adult learner; motivated, talented enough, unabashed.  And I can teach you.  You already know a hell of a lot about music and I am going to help you make the connections.
