I began playing classical guitar at the age of 6 under Caspar McCloud. Following my attending the Christopher Parkening Master Classes at the age of 14-16, I began instruction with the late, talented, and loved John Sutherland.

My teaching method for classical guitar largely follows the instructional format that I received, and uses a combination of classical guitar pedagogy, including the Christopher Parkening Method Books and Everybody’s Classical Guitar (John & BJ Sutherland).

Private instruction: Caspar McCloud (1995-2002), John Sutherland (2002-2006).

Master Classes: Christopher Parkening, Ed Weir
