Concert TONIGHT Friday the 18th!!


I will be performing on Classical Guitar and my GuitarViol (Bowed Guitar) with a 30 piece Guitar Orchestra in a concert tomorrow night at Los Angeles Valley College at 8pm. I’d love to see some or all of my students there!

Tickets are $10 and I believe they are less for students.

Los Angeles Valley College

5800 Fulton Avenue,
Valley Glen, CA 91401

Event link:


Please park in Lot B and you will need to pay $2 to park your car at a Yellow Kiosk attached to one of the light poles in the middle of the lot. They will reimburse you at the ticket table for the $2 parking permit when you buy your ticket.

The Kiosk takes card or cash but have exact change because there is no refund. 

The concert will be in the recital hall which is the building closest to Lot B. It’s pretty easy to find. There is some construction behind the music building and a false Blue wall is up to keep people out of the construction area. The music building is in front of the construction area.
