My primary mentor in college was the leader of the New York Woodwind Quintet, as well as an accomplished member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. As a bassist, I performed or toured with many jazz, blues, country, and soul greats.

My goal in teaching students is to help them grow in all aspects in Music; the technical, aesthetic; and emotional dimensions. I enjoy teaching students of all ages, from youngsters to senior citizens without exception.

Flute

I have been a professional flutist for over 40 years playing classical, jazz and most other styles of flute. I received my B.A. at SUNY at Stony Brook where I studied flute with the great Samuel Baron of the New York Woodwind Quintet and Paul Gray of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. I also studied flute and composition in graduate school at the University of Kentucky. Having joined the Musician's Union in 1965, I have preformed professionally on flute since 1972 in a wide variety of ensembles. I presently preform in a classical flute and guitar duo as well as a jazz duo and numerous larger groups.

I have played electric and acoustic guitars and electric bass professionally since 1965 in a variety of rock and jazz groups. I enjoy teaching beginners as well as intermediate level students. I also can teach music theory as it applies to the guitar.
