I started playing a Uke back in 1966 when I was 12 after getting frustrated trying to learning guitar on my own. My mom found a lady who had learned Ukulele in Hawaii and who was fun to learn from and I found after playing for a couple of years it was a lot easier to learn to play guitar. I began to learn guitar by using books, finding other musicians to jam with and by developing my ears to hear music and figure out how to play by ear. I took my first theory class at UNL in 1977 but didn’t continue my formal education again until 2009 when I went back to college and received my bachelor’s degree in Music, Audio and Video in 2011. I began playing in bands in the late seventies though the early nineties and started teaching in 1985 at D Rocks in Fremont. I began teaching at Russo’s music in Omaha in 1999 and then moving to Dietze Music where I currently teach Ukulele, Guitar and recording technology to all ages and skill levels.
