Gigs and Parties vary a lot, but a representative one would be 2 to 3 hours of playing guitar and singing, playing other instruments and playing music during breaks, for $100 plus tips and something tasty to eat and drink. I play mostly acoustic versions of popular rock songs from the last 40 years, with some loops and affects thrown in for interest.

I have been teaching for over 40 years and have taught a wide variety of subjects and instruments during that time.
The main thing I focus on teaching now is music technology with a focus on home recording for musicians. I have noticed over the years that many musicians buy an arsenal of equipment and software, but run into lots of problems trying to get it all working correctly. My background as an engineer helps me figure this stuff out pretty quickly, and I'm pretty good at explaining technical stuff so it makes sense.
Contact me to schedule a lesson or on-site consulting, or to see if I can help you with a project.
