I am an instrumentalist and composer.  I’m most at home playing and writing for acoustic guitar, solo and in ensembles. Mostly self-taught on my instruments, I’m classically trained as a composer.  My principal influences are blues, jazz, rock, and world musics, in particular, Jewish, Balkan, and Asian.  Regarding the latter, my students from China and South Korea tell me I’m a “chin (ancient Chinese zither) master,” because of my guitar style.  In 2014, I took my decades-long interest in Asian musics to the next level by attending an intensive course in gugak – traditional Korean musics – in Seoul.   I’m pleased and honored to be “home” in ensemble-MA.
