In the spring of 2008 my wife Jen and I opened the doors of The Front Room in Scott, Louisiana. The Front Room is our working music and art studio, where we offer music and photography lessons for kids and adults. It is a dynamic creation, embodying music, art, lessons and learning with award winning instructors.
I currently play with the Grammy Award winning Cajun band BeauSoleil and bring nearly 30 years of teaching experience with me to every lesson I lead. In addition to playing and teaching music, Jen is an award winning Fine Arts Photographer with over 3 decades of experience.
Together we give entertaining and educational presentations on Cajun Culture, Folklore, and Photography in schools locally, and nationwide. In The Front Room we often host group classes such as Photography for Kids, Band Lab, Tune & Jam with Steve Riley as well as Master Classes and House Concerts. In addition, we offer private lessons for all ages, abilities and genres, with Cajun fiddling as our specialty.
