I am a professional jazz pianist with a desire to pass on my knowledge of the art form to motivated young people and older adults.
In the 1980's I worked with baritone saxophonist Cecil Payne,
tenor saxophonist Junior Cook, and trumpeter Bill Hartman.

In 1978 I was a member of the Glenn Miller Orchestra led by
