Like musicians everywhere, I have been forced to give up live performing for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, the internet provides many opportunities to share my knowledge in various forms of online instruction. I am delighted to be one of the Masters on the exciting new www.StringMasters.com, an online platform for high-level, curated instruction videos, lessons, and an impressive library repertoire and teaching materials. I can also be found at www.PlayWithAPro.com for a simpler, lessons-only experience. And my first ever instructional videos are now available for purchase at https://www.dc-musicschool.com. Do check them out!
