Since that time he has performed in/with numerous bands, playing a variety of acoustic music styles including traditional bluegrass, swing, Celtic, old-time, and folk, with forays into classic jazz. Rick's goal with each student is to make them a better musician through a combination of studies in technique, ear training, written music in standard notation/tablature, and music theory.
