My Music


When I was 19 years of age, I attempted to play the guitar and  allowed people to convince me that I was not good at it. Life is what  you make of it - not what others believe you should be. Started over  again learning to play about 3 years ago and love it.

Audio samples of my music are on SoundCloud or listed below.


This is the second time I tried to play an instrument. My choice in December, 2010 was the banjo. Little did I know bluegrass banjo is extremely difficult to play. I actually believe that I spent more time learning to play the banjo than I did on either of my Masters Degrees. But, I love it.

Bass Guitar

Bass guitar is a recent addition and I love playing it. My style is early country. Because of the internet's limitations I do not have any samples of my bass guitar ability.

Hand bells and Choir Chimes

I also play Handbells and Choirchimes at Christ Episcopal Church, Warren, OH.

My backing tracks are created with Band In A Box. I love the program! Band in a Box allows me to play as fast or as slow as I want without band member complaints about timing issues.


First is my first original composition using Band In A Box. I am playing lead guitar.
