Website and bio:


Advanced beginner level

Introspective and expressive, the Five Etudes are fingerstyle studies for the advanced beginner. Each etude is a destination in an emotional journey, beginning with one conundrum and ending with another. They guide the player toward mastery of certain left-hand shapes and right-hand fingerpicking and strumming patterns.

For the intermediate player

The Four Moods for ukulele are intermediate level pieces. Each mood is meant to be played expressively, with rubato (a give and take of tempo) and with personal phrasing and dynamics. The pieces have a mix of easier and more difficult techniques, which I hope will give players the opportunity to develop new skills while playing enjoyable music. 

The Four Moods are written to be played on any ukulele in re-entrant (high G) standard tuning. They will also work well with a low G tuning.
