It was with great regret that I had to cancel my Italy tour this summer, but it was necessary due to many commitments closer to home, not the least of which is my website   We’re in the process of making a ton of new video lessons so if you haven’t visited the site in awhile, I encourage you to check it out.

Meanwhile, I’m playing a lot of gigs closer to home.
