     A dedicated musician of 24 years, Jeff has spent the majority of his waking hours on music. His extensive professional experiences on the electric, acoustic and classical guitars have given him a rock solid foundation in which to confidently teach a variety of genres.

     Jeff's professional career began at 17 years old with his first band, "Drift". A hard rock band based in his hometown of Williamson, New York, the band worked for 4 years in clubs and parties around the Finger Lakes region.

     During his tenure in Drift, Jeff enrolled in the Hochstein School of Music, studying the classical guitar. His intense study of the instrument continued for 4 years at the State University of New York at Fredonia. While at Fredonia, Jeff studied under world renown guitarist James Piorkowski. He also participated in master classes with Stanley Yates, Jason Vieux, Paul Galbraith and the Brazilian Guitar Quartet. His hard work at Fredonia earned him a Bachelors degree in Music Performance. The classical guitar remains a vital part of his career today along side his work on the electric guitar.

     After a move to Atlanta in 2002, Jeff eventually made his way to Nashville to audition for the nationally touring road band "Young Guns". Immediately upon auditioning, he was given the lead guitarist position and embarked on a 15 month tour of North America. With the band, Jeff's playing focused on the Southern Rock and Modern Country genres. The band became very successful and regulary played to packed clubs around the U.S. His touring continued with Chace Roberts's (St. Paul, Minnesota) 4 month farewell Summer tour. During this time, Jeff opened for the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and also took part in the National Rodeo in Superior, Wisconsin.

     After nearly 2 years of non stop touring, Jeff returned to Georgia, and was immediately offered the lead guitarist position for SCF Entertainment (Atlanta, Georgia). This invaluable 6 year tenure gave Jeff the chance to work with all of its "era tribute bands"; playing everything from 70's Funk to Pantera. Playing many clubs and private events, these 6 years truly solidified his skills on the electric guitar. Currently, Jeff is lead guitarist for the high energy R&B act, the Answer Band.

     As a full fledged classical guitarist, Jeff continues to build a remarkable performing career. He regularly tours around the U.S. , giving 25- 30 concerts annually. He has performed at numerous historic venues such as the Snake River Heritage Center (Weiser, Idaho), Kennedy - Douglas Center for the Arts (Florence, Alabama), Doss Heritage Center (Weatherford, Texas) and J.P. Vaughn Hall (Montello, Wisconsin).
 
     Jeff is currently available for weekly lessons in order to help you achieve your musical aspirations. Lessons are available on the electric, acoustic and classical guitars. Lessons focus on the personal goals of the student along with musicianship and proper technique.
