Welcome!

* Composition Sharing Project: My main purpose is to compose music and share it. Would you consider helping in sharing the music with music schools around the world? This project consists of traveling to music schools to donate all my music collections, play concerts of this music and give masterclasses. If you'd like to help, please, consider making a donation below. If you let me know, I can send you in exchange my music collections by email, which will match the value of your contribution. If you donate more than $500 and if you prefer, instead of sending you music collections, I can write a new composition and dedicate it to you.

I love music and it's the principal channel through which I carry out my purpose in life and try to make a little positive contribution. I'm a professional musician in several areas: classical guitar (my principal training), composition, orchestral/choral conducting, organ, church music, and therapeutic music. In this website you can watch my music videos, listen to my CD's and buy them, see samples of my compositions, and buy scores and guitar tabs of my compositions and arrangements.

I live in Charlottesville, Virginia, and I perform regularly in Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, North Carolina and West Virginia. I also travel for performances anywhere in the USA and abroad. I also do these other musical activities:
Music director and organist at the Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Charlottesville, VA.
Teach guitar at Randolph College.
Play therapeutic guitar music for patients at the UVA Medical Center and the Hospice of the Piedmont.
Teach private guitar lessons in my guitar studio in Charlottesville.
Compose music and sell it in this website as PDF.

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
