A PERSONAL MESSAGE

While some businesses are cautiously beginning to open, most live performance venues are still closed.   Please continue to support your local musicians and venues in any way you can. 

I remain available via Skype and Facetime to provide lessons in jazz theory and performance to musicians of all ages and levels.

Please continue to check back regularly for livestreaming events, updates and new content.  I look forward to seeing you on-line and live in the near future.
