Welcome to my OCC homepage. From here, current students may access my course syllabi for music history and music reading classes, as well as related study sheets and listening assignments. You may also find my teaching schedule for the current semester, with office hours marked in. During my four decades at Onondaga I've taught clarinet, music history, ear-training and small ensemble classes. In 2012 I was recognized for my teaching with the awarding of the SUNY Chancellors Award for Excellence in Teaching.

I am also President of The Professional Musicians of Central New York, Local 78 of the American Federation of Musicians (AFM). In my former life I was a classical music and opera reviewer with The Syracuse Post-Standard, winning 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 am still currently a member of the Music Critics Association of North America (MCANA). Please feel free to browse my most recent classical music reviews of the Metropolitan Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, NYS Baroque and Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music on my music and theater critiques site, CNY Cafe Momus.

My educational background is firmly tied to the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester. There, I earned the Bachelor of Music with Distinction degree followed by the Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees. During my Eastman days I also served in the clarinet section of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Feel free to follow me on Twitter at @cnycafemomus.
