When I'm not playing or teaching, I make mandolin straps in many different prints and colors. Visit my booth here to see my straps,violin and viola accessories.
And I want to give a huge thanks to my past music teachers that really made a mark on me in a good way: Phil Boroff (classical guitar) Dave Zeitlin (guitar fingerpicking) and Barry Solomon (flatpicking guitar) I am able to do this thanks to your taking the time to teach a very insecure and high strung teen age girl. You gave her some of the best moments of her teen years!
Your Patronage supports my creative practice and enables me to not only make a living as a musician,but to open the ears of folks who have never heard blues/rock music on mandolin before,and encourage those listeners to take up playing their own music. It will also help pay for:
- Equipment needed to teach music (fresh strings,tuners,picks,books,etc)
- Cover business expenses such as my cell phone,advertising,maintaining my instruments,costumes and auto expenses.
- Paying for my annual license that allows me to teach,do busking,and sell CDS,etc legally.
- Being a living example proving that you can create the life you want and live it happily.
