A few words about me...

I'm not sure where all the time has gone, but according to my calendar I am nearing my fourth decade here at Onondaga. During my time here I've enjoyed performing and teaching, and especially seeing my best students transfer to and graduate from some of the finest music schools and conservatories in the world, including the Eastman School of Music and the Curtis Institute of Music. Several of my former students currently hold positions in major symphony orchestras and prominent university faculties across the country. Along with clarinet and ear-training classes, the bulk of my teaching load at Onondaga is devoted to teaching music history classes, which helped me earn the SUNY Chancellors Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2012.

In addition to my teaching responsibilities I am also an award-winning classical music reviewer and a member of the Music Critics Association of North America (MCANA). I had spent some 17 years at The Syracuse Post-Standard, earning 12 Syracuse Press Club awards including Best in Category (first-place) awards in Critiques, Best Human Interest Story, and the Robert Haggart Memorial Award for Best Daily Newspaper Column. I have also written music columns for the Eagle Newspapers in Syracuse. Please feel free to take a look at my most recent classical music reviews of the Metropolitan Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, NYS Baroque and Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music via my music and theater critiques site, CNY Cafe Momus.

Whatever time is left in the day I try to devote to two great passions: chess (which consumes far too much of my time), and Mozart operas (for which there will never be sufficient time). I live in Camillus with my wife, Cheryl, and our incorrigible miniature schnauzer, Teddy (shown here in Syracuse this winter preparing for sunnier days to come), whose birthday just happens to coincide with that of W.A. Mozart.
