More About Me

I play violin/fiddle for many groups in many styles. Please contact me to see how I can make your voice or band sound sweet and complete. I offer fiddle lessons at my spacious and private studio in Nipomo, California. Styles include Bluegrass, Old-Time, Country, Folk, Rock, and blues (loosely defined as American fiddle music from the Civil War to the present). I began violin at age 5 with private classical lessons from symphony concertmistress and Juliard-trained Shirley Lynch. During my youth I was a member of two city symphonies, and was a Featured Soloist with the Santa Maria Symphomy under critically-acclaimed conductor Samuel Gorbach. Later I went on to study Bluegrass and Country Music at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. I have performed for George W. Bush, the King of Fiji, on a cruise ship on the Yangzte river in central China, and most recently in Eastern Europe. I have played musical theatre productions, and have toured with several bands and taught music workshops throughout the US and Canada. My discography includes albums on CMH and Rounder. I recorded a solo album of all original music back in 2003. Currently my most active work is with the bluegrass band The Roustabouts and with singer/songwriter Patrick Montgomerey. I tailor my teaching style towards individual needs, from learning by "ear", to standard notation. I emphasize the 5 "T"s of Tone, InTonation, Taste, Timing, and Tuning. I enjoy teaching adults as well as children. Some of the bands and people I have performed and/or recorded with in the past include: Holy Shelter Swamp, The Whiskey Crate Warriors, Rye Straw, The Kathy Kallick Band, High Country, The Cache Valley Drifters, Little Roy Lewis, Peter Feldman and the Very Lonesome Boys, The Porch Dogs, Jerry Douglas, Tim O'Brien, Jason Carter, Andy Leftwich, The Steep Canyon Rangers, Open Road, The Del Williams Band, Mike McKinley and Riptide, Chris Thile, Rob Ickes, Chris Stuart and Backcountry, Ronnie Stewart, Martha Scanlan and Thomas Snead of the Reeltime Travelers, The String Cheese Incident, Gilles Apap, Junior Sisk, Vern Williams, Sally Van Meter, Iron Lasso, Jimmy Van Cleve, The Angelica Grim Band, The Circle R Boys, The Floyd County Boys, Eric Uglum, Darol Anger, Mountain Drive, The Sharecroppers, The Pleasant Valley Boys, The Brothers Barton, Mr. Banjo and the Lonesome Wailers, Highway One, High Country, Steve Spurgin, Paige Bronton and Sidetrack, Rosebud Blue, Bill Cliffton, The James King Band, The Haydudes, The Central Valley Boys, Kenny Sultan, Megan Lynch, Janet Beazley, The Down Beets, Patrick Montgomery, Belle Monroe and Her Brewgrass Boys, The Roustabouts, Leroy McNees, David West, Snap Jackson and the Knock On Wood Players, The Mineral Kings, Eddie DuCommun.
