Now offering guitar lessons online!

Now, as responsible citizens, we are hunkering down in our homes as much as possible, and it's a great time to do some good for our souls, learn something new, and do things together, but in a social distancing kind of way. So I am offering guitar lessons online (ukulele, too!) and geographical location doesn't have to get in our way! Read about my work, and contact me on this blog. 
Spend a musical hour with me. Reasonable rates!

cockeyed optimist

Cockeyed Optimist, from South Pacific, 
by Rodgers & Hammerstein

I wrote the solo guitar arrangement based on ascending basslines, 
starting on the fifth, for many of the chords.

I believe wholeheartedly in this song.

Let's Twist Again...with some holiday seasoning!

purchasing tickets online is the best way to save money and guarantee a seat. here's the direct ticket link: tickets to the fallout shelter!

Monica Passin sings and tells tales of her life, and the world at large, in 1962. She was five. Blessedly unaware of the threat of nuclear annihilation, Monica saw a world of people dancing and having fun, responding with the biggest dance craze of all, the Twist!  Her father had danced on television, and her parents met mamboing. When she reached for the toes of Chubby Checker, on stage in a sharkskin suit in the Catskills, the die was cast for a life of music and dance and a culture swap that maybe, just maybe, could save the world.
