About Me

  • Private Instruction, Classical & Jazz ~ Piano and Voice, 1985 ~ present / Trumpet, 1972 ~ present
  • Performing Arts Group, Inc, Chicago/Suburbs ~ Music Coordinator/Teacher for children`s theater productions and after~school classes in music, acting/creative writing, 1990~2000  



I can say humbly and without ego that I'm not your average musician. I started my musical training at the age of 3 under the stern tutelage of my father, himself a musician who played numerous instruments, including the harpsichord, ukelele, accordion, bass trombone, flugelhorn, baritone saxophone, washboard, harmonica, clarinet, rotary trumpet, slap bass, and piccolo.


It was clear from the moment I was born that music was to be my destiny. Almost as soon as my father cut the cord, he was teaching chord theory and other formal constructs of music. This early training turned out to be invaluable, as it paved the way for my more formal training at the most prestigious musical institutions in the world.
