mandolin or guitar teacher, performer, recording artist (live or on skype lessons)

I teach private lessons for individuals or groups of all ages. I conduct workshops on mandolin, guitar, band arrangement and dynamics, jamming skills, and history and culture of Appalachian and/or Himalayan music. I am also often hired as a mando mercenary when a band may need a mandolin player for gigs or recordings sessions. I also have a bluegrass band, swing jazz band, and a Nepali-Appalachian band that can be hired for events.
