In 2019 I will be placing more emphasis on teaching and somewhat less on traveling. With teaching becoming more personally and artistically rewarding these past years this is a natural shift towards a more balanced mode of activity all around. So if you are planning to be in Manhattan or need another reason to visit please consider contacting me to discuss what’s on your musical mind. Click the contact link above to send an e-mail…
