Becca and I congratulate Sarek Buchan for a wonderful fiddle performance at the Barry County Fair's "Talent Contest." Eight year old Sarek took top honors in the contest, which included contestants as old  as 19 yrs., with a medley of fiddle dance tunes. This was Sarek's first contest. He has been studying the violin for four years, and visiting me for fiddle lessons for almost a year.
      Any one can learn to play music, if they feel so inclined.  The key is in the discipline, which is the hardest part.  I always say, "learning to learn" is the first hurdle.  Once the habit of a certain  amount of time allotted a day is established, anything is possible.   
     In an effort to arm the world with implements of peace, I've been showing folks how to play instruments for over 30 years now, and having a great time at it.  I've met wonderful people, and have been privileged to see how folks evolve personally when the music begins flowing through them.  I teach beginners as well as those looking to improve an established technique.   
     I perform shows using guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki, viola, mandola, and cello, but my preferences for teaching is with guitar, mandolin, and fiddle.  
     Call me at 616-785-3208 or E-Mail me, and we can talk about what you are looking for, and the rest of the details.  Lessons are given in a safe, creative environment at my home up here on the Grand River
