Growing up in suburban Chicago, I was influenced [no surprise!] by the excellence of the Chicago Symphony. I studied trombone with Mr. Frank Crisafulli, long time trombonist in the orchestra: later I studied with Ed Kleinhammer and Charlie Vernon. Other teachers included Per Brevig of the Metropolitan Opera, Dr. Robert Gray of the University of Illinois and Jeff Reynolds of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. My academic studies, at Northwestern and the University of Illinois focused on Theory and Composition, while doctoral study at Juilliard was on the trombone. My first work was in the area of university teaching, working in Fairbanks, Alaska, Calgary, Canada and Seattle, Washington. Deciding that I really wanted to test myself in the professional playing area, I took auditions [MANY auditions!], landing jobs with the Calgary Philharmonic, New Mexico Symphony and Hong Kong Philharmonic. I returned to Chicago in 2000 to care for my aging parents and built up teaching [in local high schools] and playing work in Chicago with area orchestras and dance bands. This culmination of this freelance playing was a series of concerts with the Chicago Symphony. I received information about a teaching opportunity in Thailand, where I played [in the Thailand Philharmonic] and taught [at the Mahidol University College of Music] for ten years, retiring in the spring of 2017. We moved from Seattle [where I had settled on retirement] to Glens Falls, New York, to be near our daughter Jennifer, who works as Executive Director of the Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra. I am hoping to make use of extensive teaching and performing experience to help students take advantage of advanced skill building on the instrument.
