Throw back to a time when I was gung-ho for covering tunes note for note. Now I just want to write music. It’s interesting how these phases come and go.

Had a great pre-gig hang on top of Bald Rock Mountain this afternoon!

Here's one of my youngest students playing along to "Free Fallin.'" This was the first time he played the song without me accompanying him. So proud of this lil' guy!
