Aaron is a self-taught musician starting back in the summer after seventh grade in 1993 after learning his first few chords from his aunt on her electric guitar he was borrowing and soon after given (which was quickly decorated with stickers and paint). He began learning songs by ear and progressing to TAB-reading with the self-help of Guitar World magazine and transcription books. From then on, beginning at his eighth grade talent show all through metal bands in high school to jam bands in college where he was introduced to jazz Aaron has sought out music-playing along every stage of his musical development.

Today, Aaron is lead & rhythm guitarist with various professional musical theatre companies year-round in Maplewood, St. Louis, Kirkwood & Creve Couer having recently played the Guitar II Chair in New Line Theatre’s production of American Idiot and the Guitar I Chair in two productions of Jesus Christ Superstar.
