It has been a personal and fulfilling goal to introduce, share, promote, teach and perform music on the guitar for over fifty-six years now and by using classical guitar as my primary vehicle considerable success has been achieved for students from 5 to 87 years of age. Having studied sitar and sarod with Ali Akbar Khan (North Indian Classical Music), then on my own the Makam Music of the oud, Spanish Flamenco Music, Afro-Cuban salsa, American Jazz and Blues, it has been a long range desire to incorporate these diverse musical worlds into a unified field of improvisational language eminently possible on the guitar. I welcome any and all with similar ideas to share. Some of my greatest teachers have also been my students and now with the networking available to us my tiny sailboat world on St. Thomas has gotten much larger and faster.
