I am french born and have played classical guitar since I was 11. I took up the 5-chord zither as a speciality when 22 and I have performed and taught both these instruments for the past 32 years. I am a composer and have written many original pieces and arrangements on zither and guitar. I have produced 7 CDs of zither music, one of guitar and one of my own songs (sung by Anne Vercoe). At the moment, I am working on a 5 CD series of all my guitar compositions and arrangements.
