Something no one knows about ME:
I have been a music educator and professional musician for 50 years. I worked in Las Vegas with many different groups all through the 60’s. I played with the Stan Kenton Orchestra for five years during the 70’s and then taught junior high band from ’78 to ’85. Following that I worked on cruise ships for fifteen years eight of which I was Musical Director for American Hawaii Cruises. I finished up my “Cruising Career” with a world cruise on the Queen Mary II. I then taught K-12 music in a small Texas town near Amarillo for ten years. I really enjoy working privately with students and after making a permanent move to the Phoenix area I look forward to teaching at AMA.
