Besides going out in public to play my music for you, I love teaching, both private lessons and group classes in a workshop format.

 Workshops:  I've been teaching for the past 25 years at   some of the premier music workshops around the globe, including the International Guitar Seminar, Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, Port Townsend  Blues Week, Reso Summit in Nashville, EuroBlues in England, and others. I  usually do 4 or 5 of them in the summer so you can check the calendar page to see where I'll be this year.

Lessons: I also give private lessons on dobro and guitar on Tuesdays only at Dusty Strings in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. I teach from 11AM to 8PM. I have some openings so if you are a player or know someone who needs some lessons drop me an email and we can talk.

Online: I'm getting it together to do lessons by Skype soon, I'll let you know when it's happening. I have lessons available on some great online websites at Peghead Nation,, and Acoustic Guitar Magazine's fine website.
