While it's mostly been an avocation, I've played professionally in New York City with jazz musicians, including David Izenson, Paul Motian, Steve Grossman, Bill Ohashi, Jeff Hittman, and Eddy Williams.

I have played tenor saxophone for more than 40 years. I've developed practice methods for playing scales that include all 7 modes including the dominant 7th scale, half diminished, and locrian or flat 7th augmented 4th.

During the 1990's I tutored several players of differing skill levels.
