I am a musician who specializes in early music with an emphasis in central European historical plucked instruments of the 17th and 18th centuries. Throughout my life, I have had the great fortune of studying with many outstanding teachers, including a few that I consider to be musically enlightened. Although my specialty is the 13-course German Baroque lute and 14-course theorbo, I am proficient on many instruments including the violin, viola da gamba, guitar as well as several others. I earned my undergraduate degree from Oklahoma City University, summa cum laude, and I hold a master’s degree in Early Music with an emphasis on historical plucked strings from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.
