Throughout my thirty-six years of teaching, my mission continues to be “To foster each student’s lifelong love and appreciation of music.” I am a native of Binghamton, N.Y. and have recently retired after thirty-two years as a director of bands at Elmira Free Academy High School and from Elmira College, after twenty-five years. In addition, I co-conduct the Corning Area Community Concert Band and is the instrumental music director at the First Presbyterian Church in Elmira. I also currently perform in the Orchestra of the southern finger lakes, with various brass groups, and as a soloist throughout the region.
