I am a graduate of Lexington, MA HS, Bowdoin College and Cornell Univ graduate school, where I studied, sang and played sports. Baseball, basketball, captain of the tennis team, choral soloist, glee club.

I spent 5 years in the US Peace Corps in Colombia and traveling all over Latin America, so I speak perfect Spanish and am very at home in most Latin cultural situations.I teach Spanish regularly today.

Then I spent 27 years in Sweden, speak native Swedish and am still active as a cultural ambassador between the US and Sweden. I sang professionally for 20 years.

Back in the US I have concentrated on performing, composing, teaching and creative writing, and primarily on raising two wonderful kids, now 14 and 12 years old. We laugh and sing and play a lot.

I have taught Spanish, English, Swedish and music from K thru 12, led several choirs, coached baseball, basketball and tennis and I HAVE LOADS OF FUN DOING IT!

I have taught music from grades k thru 12 in various Maine schools. I have led children's choirs, from toddlers to high schoolers to adult groups, in Maine and in Sweden. I have worked as a performer, arranger and producer of musical recordings for many years.
Sight Singing,

Sight Singing

Many years of choral and solo vocal work have given me a most thorough command of sight singing. I have written, transcribed and arranged dozens of songs for myself and others to sight read. I have also taught voice, and sight singing is an important part of my lessons.
Voice (Music)

Voice (Music)

I have led a number of youth choirs, where much of my work was getting the youngsters to use their voices properly when singing, be it in the choir or as a soloist. I have also taught voice to students privately, on a one-to-one basis, often using my own CD's to illustrate what we are trying to do.
