OWNER/GUITAR TEACHER @ DON'T FRET GUITAR INSTRUCTION. Over the years, I have taught countless students (beginners to advanced) how to play or improve their chops. Past students include four members of PROTEST THE HERO. I am the author of 'LEARNING BLUES GUITAR', a unique blues guitar method available for purchase in PDF form. I have never operated the way most instructors do: ten minutes to tune up, then twenty minutes to work out and scribble down a song from a recording. Everything I do is worked out in advance. If a student wants to learn a particular song that is not part of the curriculum, I will work on the song on my own time and present it to them in a professional transcription, not something that is indecipherable. I want to do what I have always done: Get students playing as quickly as possible to keep their interest alive, and to instill a love of music that will last a lifetime.

I have a Band Program in place, where students form bands and perform concerts for various functions.

Wrote, arranged, and produced 'A LIFE OF CHRISTMAS' a holiday rock opera, inspired by The Trans Siberian Orchestra. We perform this every year at Victoria Hall, Cobourg Ontario, Canada. 

A veteran of many bands, I currently work with a Blues-Classic Rock Band: JackHammer.

I am also one half of Henderson & Hemmerling, an original music project, that I am extremely proud of. We make a wonderful writing and recording team.
