Teaching

I have the privilege of teaching some of the most gifted young musicians in the world at Interlochen Center for the Arts. This is me and my Interlochen Arts Academy Guitar studio after a solo concert I gave in Traverse City in 2018.

We're lucky to host some of the most exciting guest artists touring today. 

With Marcin Dylla, during his teaching and performance residency in Fall 2018

With Thomas Viloteau from Peabody Institute

I teach Classical Guitar at Interlochen Arts Academy, and during the summers I teach Interlochen's 3-week Classical Guitar Camp

I also teach "Contemporary Guitar" at Interlochen Arts Academy, which is our umbrella term for styles of guitar playing that don't necessarily consist of composed music. Here are some Interlochen guitarists with improvisatory geniuses Chris "Critter" Eldridge (Probably best known for his work with the Punch Brothers), and the one and only Julian Lage during their residency in 2016

I also coach House Band, Interlochen Arts Academy's Contemporary Music large ensemble

From time to time I teach masterclasses, give lectures about music education, or judge the odd guitar competition outside the borders of Northern Michigan. This is especially enjoyable during winter months, when the weather gets a bit chilly back home...
