I am the long time owner and primary teacher at LMI. I started piano in 1974 at the age of five, and with the exception of an active duty stint in the Army and a couple time of high demand at work prior to LMI, I have never stopped learning! I am a husband of a lovely wife, a father of two incredible adult children, and a part time mechanic and voracious reader.
I have been in 2 successful bands and love performing. I enjoy making it all about my audience and like teaching kids to do the same. I teach them that when music becomes language and communication...they are ready to entertain. The only thing I love more than entertaining and performing is teaching and mentoring young musicians.
I have been doing it here since 2004 and have no intention of stopping. I teach every child differently with the same goals in mind. I develop them as far as they want to go, to fulfill the desires and goals they seek, using every bit of creativity, discipline and experience with which God has blessed me. And I savor every minute of it.
