I have always loved playing with my family… especially my dad because that was something we understood and enjoyed together. My older brother (guitarist) and I always play together when we can.
Music is such a bonding thing. When we play together, we are truly sharing and experiencing something great and become one in the same process. Even if we are just listening to it together it's a beneficial shared experience.
Music always cheers me up and inspires me. I used to play Mozart when doing homework because it really does make it easier to concentrate for me.
It is my hope that my music reaches your ears and lights up your soul with happiness and ease.
Music is one of God's greatest gifts... so sit back, relax, and let each delicious note soothe your soul.
