Video Collection

Imagine what would happen if you recorded thousands of hours of lessons over nearly a decade, and then edited the best, most teachable moments into an every-growing collection of short, high impact videos.

Well, that’s exactly what the The Video Collection is, and I’m happy to share it with you. No matter how long you’ve played, what skills you’re working to improve, or your areas of interest, the Video Collection has videos to help you move your playing forward.

You can search for videos using keywords (piece or composer you’re working on), or click on a tag below to see videos that match your criteria.

Have fun!  (If you have an idea for a video, click here to post a request).
