I am very excited, elated, and flabbergasted to announce that I am now the Adjunct Jazz Guitar Instructor at Oklahoma City University!
This amazing opportunity was presented by Oklahoma City Universities Classical Guitar Instructor extraordinaire Matthew Denman. He has been a tremendous inspiration since meeting him nearly a year ago, and I could not be more excited to be a part of his growing team of guitar instructors. The environment at Oklahoma City University is truly revolutionary and is poised to become a hub for guitarists across all genres from Early Music and Classical to Jazz and Contemporary. Oklahoma City University will have it covered! I am incredibly blessed to be a part of a growing culture of guitar focused individuals.
Another unique opportunity in Oklahoma City is the growing focus on jazz. Tuesday Evenings have become home to Jazz Night in Deep Deuce, which focuses on the area in Oklahoma City where jazz luminaries such as guitarist Charlie Christian cut their teeth in the 1940's. Slaughter's Hall, WSKY Lounge, and Urban Johnnie are among the venues presenting live jazz on Tuesday evening's from 7:00 - 10:00pm in the historic Deep Deuce District located along 2nd Street in Downtown Oklahoma City. You can catch me regularly performing with various groups on Tuesdays at one of these incredible establishments!
Thanks to the newly opened Bistro 46, Monday night could turn into a regular jazz jam session located at 23rd Street and I-35. This fantastic venue kicks off its inaugural jazz jam session on Monday, January 25th at 7:00pm!
The opportunities are endless as Oklahoma City continues to grow and embrace the jazz roots it developed by being a primary stopping point on the Chitlin' Circuit in the late 19th century to the 1960's. Oklahoma is a hub for musicians of all genres and continues to grow in support of the diverse musical culture our city was built upon.
Come on out to one of my gigs located on the Gig page at the top. I'd love to meet up and discuss music and the guitar. Feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for visiting and enjoy your 2016!
