The goal of my blog is to help others by sharing information that has helped me. I want to provide content that you can apply to your life. If you enjoy music, then you are in the right place.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I serve as Associate Dean of the Center for Music and the Performing Arts for the Liberty University School of Music. My responsibilities include providing leadership for curricular programs, recruiting, budget management, and faculty evaluation. I also serve as Professor of Music at Liberty University, where I teach applied guitar, guitar pedagogy, and guitar ensemble.
I am active as a guitar soloist, chamber musician, scholar, administrator, and teacher. I have performed in Europe as well as in North and South America, including performances on West Virginia Public Radio, Classics Radio in Virginia, and Bolivian television. I have appeared as a guest artist at the Alexandria Guitar Festival near Washington, D.C. and the Asolo Song Festival in Italy. I have collaborated with artists such as Jami Tyzik, Stephen Miahky, Alycia Hugo, Wendell Dobbs, Megan Roth, Kristian Anderson, and Matthew Cochran.
I currently serve on the Board of Trustees for the Guitar Foundation of America and as Guitar Forum editor for the Virginia chapter of the American String Teachers Association. I have spoken at the International Experiencing Villa-Lobos Conference, the American String Teachers Association National Convention, and the Guitar Foundation of America International Convention.
