About Me


I'm a multi-instrumentalist, folk musician, and music teacher located in Columbia, South Carolina. I'll attempt to play anything with strings and have a love of Appalachian music traditions. Here you'll find information about my music, lessons, and who/where/when I'm playing in the near future. If you see anything you're interested in, drop me a line. I'm always happy to talk music.

From time to time I provide music for private events, farmer's markets, fundraisers, etc. Contact me for more information about booking.

I offer guitar, banjo, fiddle, upright bass, and mandolin lessons to students of all ages, in person in the Columbia, SC area and also online via Zoom/Skype. I tend to focus on traditional Appalachian music, but can help students get started and progress in any style. contact me for more information, or to schedule a lesson.

For in person lessons, I'm currently teaching out of Bill's Music Shop & Picking Parlor in West Columbia.
