I have been a professional musician for the last 42 years. I am proficient and classically trained in GUITAR, THEORY and VOICE. I began taking lessons when I was 5 years of age. My first stage appearance was at the age of 8. I teach guitar, bass, keys, and voice. I taught for Luscre Music, Dusi Music, Tee Ross Music, and New York Music in the Youngstown area for many years.
Much of the coursework for my baccalaureate degree was spent in the field for Archaeology and Anthropology credits. I have been on site with Dr. John White and Dr. Gary Fry- both with Youngstown State. Currently, I work for the Youngstown Center for Industry and Labor as an archivist and industrial archaeologist under the direction of Dr. Thomas Leary, the director of Education.
