Since 1990, I have enjoyed spreading my love for music through becoming a professional music teacher and musician. 

I also give guitar lessons for both individual students as well as small groups.  Additionally, I offer seminars on the Theory of Harmony,

Functional Harmony and Jazz Improvisation.

I believe that Arthur Rubenstein says it best: “I have found if you love life; life will love you back”.  And that is exactly what I do, I love life!  I have a beautiful wife, two amazing kids and a passion for sharing my love of music! 



My love affair with music started at the age of 6, where I received instrumental lessons for classical guitar as well as music theory lessons from a qualified music teacher.  At age 10, I also began classical piano.  This amazing teacher helped me to really understand how important music was in my life.  She continued to teach me and became a big part of my life until I started studying at the University of Siegen (1984-1987).  At Uni Siegen the fields I studied were music education and English.  But after passing the entrance exam at the Arnhem Jazz Conservatory, I moved to the Netherlands to study jazz guitar from 1987 to 1990.

Our duo "GOLDENViBe" can be booked for events, also for private events such as living room - concerts, weddings, anniversaries, celebrations, funeral services, etc.
