Raising three children to adulthood in partnership with my wife and My Lord has been a remarkable journey, with frequent highs, several lows, and even a few events and circumstances that truly cannot be explained without using the word "miracle." I like to think that all these experiences have shaped me and will continue to shape me into an effective and empathetic teacher in a variety of musical disciplines.
