I am grateful for my youthful experience as a rock guitarist. In fact, it was the Symphonic Rock of the 196s0/1970s – along with the awesome collection of Chopin LPs belonging to my buddy’s mom – that initially sparked my interest in contemporary, classical, romantic, baroque and renaissance guitar music (and their period reproduction instruments).
I love to explore the vast world of guitar music: its many styles, techniques, personas and contexts. And, like most adventures, it's more fun to go with friends! I am privileged to lead this musical quest in the company of my wonderfully enthusiastic guitar students from our base camp at Laurier.
When not off on these musical voyages, I maintain a busy performing career playing chamber and solo concerts; CD, theatre and television recording; and arranging and composing.
I enjoy the energy and commitment that a new generation of guitar ‘seekers’ bring to the demanding and varied guitar programme at Laurier.
