Darrell began studying guitar when he was 10. By the time he was 15 he had his first band. They played for friends and relatives parties and charitable events. By the time he was in high school the band was playing regularly in the Orlando area doing Youth Center gigs, local rock radio promotions, college parties all the way from Gainsville to Vero Beach. The drummer auditioned for Johnny Winter and went on to record and tour with him for four years.
Guitar teaching began early with friends and roommates and continued during a 4 year stint in the US Air Force. After the Air Force he returned to the Orlando area and played with a 7 piece dance/showband that was the warm-up band for entertainer musician Tiny Tim during his 1975 Central Florida tour.
Darrell says " It's not just the fun of seeing my students progress and enjoy playing good music, its the learning he gains from preparing music lesson plans for so many different people with broad musical interests. The guitar is an instrument that can find a home in country, jazz, pop, rock, blues, and classical applications.
