Art and music are fundamental to a rich life. The possibility of opening up a wonderful voice and mind to artistic expression is thrilling. To imagine and engage in working with a student on what might evolve in time is a privilege. The pursuit of the musical arts is a lifelong endeavor. My career spans a long time and there have been many special moments that have made my journey joyous: the people, the music, and the many exotic places. Personal interests include my family, my home, travel and motorcycle adventures.
