Additional studies included work in solfeggio with A.A. Biferno of the G.R. Symphony, master classes with Jeffrey Van and world renowned guitar virtuoso Christopher Parkening, in which he was chosen to play in recital and asked to return the following year.

He is a past performing member of the St. Cecilia Music Society and has appeared on their Michigan Artist Series in 1987. As a soloist, he was one of 150 West Michigan artists chosen to perform in the first state-wide arts festival in Detroit.
