COMPOSER | MENTOR
I am a New Jersey-based composer of contemporary classical music and some jazz. My work spans piano, string, and wind instrumentations.
I took 10 years of piano and solfege lessons at The French School of Music in Plainfield, NJ during the 70s, and was a student of Yvonne Combe (who studied with Debussy, Saint-Saëns, Fauré, and Ravel). As a child I played in Carnegie Recital Hall nine times.
I went on to work as a technologist and real estate investor, having graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.S. in Math - Computing. I've taken an extended sabbatical to focus on music composition, and capturing French School's solfege methodology so that future generations of music students can have what was once available to us. I study composition and now orchestration in the Juilliard School's Evening Division.
