|I work as a performing singer-guitarist primarily playing for restaurants, hotels, parties and events. I can entertain virtually any audience with a large repertoire of songs from classics to current.
A few years ago, the Activities Director for a number of senior homes hired me to provide entertainment during the Holiday Season; this was a great success. She then suggested I introduce myself to homes and centers around my home on the Westside of Los Angeles, California.
The response has been very positive and I have since performed numerous concerts at some of the finest senior and convalescent care establishments, including many repeat appearances.
Audience members often sing along with their favorite songs, some hoot and holler, others are moved to tears, and many even get up to dance! Caregivers have shared with me the lift in morale and the awakening they observe during–and long after–my performances.
Budgets and groups of any size–even individual performances–are welcome.
I look forward to playing music for you and your loved ones in the future!
—TRAINING & GUIDELINES—
I studied at Berklee College of Music and practice the principles outlined by neurologist Oliver Sacks, M.D. (best known for "Awakenings") in "Musicophilia."
"Music is part of being human."
"Music can also evoke worlds very different from the personal, remembered worlds of events, people, places we have known."
"The inexpressible depth of music, so easy to understand and yet so inexplicable, is due to the fact that it reproduces all the emotions of our innermost being, but entirely without reality and remote from its pain Music expresses only the quintessence of life and of its events, never these themselves."
"Darwin himself was evidently puzzled, as he wrote in The Descent of Man: ‘As neither the enjoyment nor the capacity of producing musical notes are faculties of the least use to man they must be ranked among the most mysterious with which he is endowed.’"
"Perception is never purely in the present – it has to draw on experience of the past."
