I was very fortunate to learn my playing techniques for the EC from Boris and Sergei Matueswitch. Boris had a plethora of music he arranged and transcribed for teaching proper phrasing (bellow control) and notation (note placement for proper and alternative fingering when playing single or complex note patterns and chords). Both men were extremely accomplished musicians and performers. Boris could play anything. I offer lessons to others hoping to teach their lessons and techniques. Two of several questions I ask when someone wishes to study with me is what kind of music they like to play
About 6 years ago I decided to dedicate myself to developing a way to play and perform in the swing jazz style of Django Reinhardt, the famed swing European jazz guitarist. A few years ago I was lucky enough to plug into a weekly gypsy jazz jam session. While the EC was at first a bit of an oddity in this musical venue I slowly received acceptance and began to get offers to gig. That led to Buco Cavar, a well known jazz guitarist in the area, inviting me to be part of DC Ambiance and we've been performing our arrangements ever since.
