Music

Here are some of my musical performances!  I have recorded a few live solo performances, as well as a bunch of music videos from my “one-man band.”  Please also check out my YouTube channel!

I’ve been involved in music since I was a young child.  My dad taught me the basics of the guitar and piano, as well as how to play by ear.  I later joined the Orchestra program at school and was formally taught on the violin.  I never got really serious with music after high school, but I’ve always enjoyed playing music for fun.  Over the years, I’ve learned to play a few more instruments such as the bass guitar and the accordion.  In the last few years, I’ve done a lot of stuff at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, which has re-kindled my interest in music and has introduced me to many dedicated talented musicians.   Hopefully you’ll see more music to come! 🙂
