About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Pianist, teacher, record archivist
Location Roanoke, Alabama, United States
Introduction My interest in music can be traced back to my toddler years - I have photographs of me at the age of two - in diapers, playing 45 rpm records on a phonograph. I started piano lessons rather late (at the age of ten) and studied at Jacksonville (Alabama) State University, earning a bachelor's degree in piano performance. I also compose, preferring to write music with my students in mind.
Interests Music - especially classical piano and opera. I have an odd fascination with coloratura sopranos.
Favorite Movies Shine, Immortal Beloved
Favorite Music Classical piano music, classical music in general, oldies music and 80s dance music.
Favorite Books Tales of the City (series), The American Opera Singer (Peter G. Davis), The Great Pianists (Schonberg), anything by Elyse Mach
