Music Industry Affiliates

As an artist, producer, composer, and educator I rely heavily on high quality equipment and for performing and recording my music. If you are looking for any advice on instruments or enhancements I highly recommend these companies.

Community Music

“Music is life.” – Paul Haas

The world needs more opportunities for people of any age and level of musicianship to create and make music together. I really enjoy leading Bluegrass jams or assisting with community Contra dance clubs to support people gathering and deepening their connection to music. Contact me to schedule a date, or discuss making it part of my tour when I am in traveling in your area.
