Three Evenings will be available on CD, for download, and on all streaming sites later this summer. Stay tuned!

Ten Studies for Classical Guitar - Vol. 1











I have just completed a new PDF book containing ten short studies for classical guitar. Although these pieces were composed for classical guitar, they would work just as well on steel string guitar. The compositions are appropriate for intermediate level players and above. My aim was to write studies that help develop finger-style technique, while also being musically expressive.

I have a standard notation edition available as well as a standard notation & TABs edition. Click the store tab to purchase. 




NEW EP - Belonging Just Where You Are

My brand new seven song EP and TABs will be available for download on Tuesday, July 6th.

It will also be live on all streaming sites Friday, July 16th.

These pieces were written over the last year during the pandemic. I was spending most of my time teaching classical guitar virtually. I was also writing a lot of music for my students in standard tuning (exercises & short pieces). Some of these pieces eventually became larger works that I really loved, so I decided to work them up for recording. It has also been refreshing to return to composing in standard tuning. The goal has been to compose in standard tuning with both my head and my heart....and I am loving it.

I recorded these songs with Tom Eaton in Newburyport, MA on June 30th and July 1st, and Tom did all the mixing and mastering on July 2nd. There is no one I would rather create music with than Tom Eaton. I am very proud of this recording. I hope you enjoy the music.
