Music is a mystery for people who play it, write it, listen to it, and write about it. The only thing I can really do when I try to say something about music is assume.

Interview with my father
I can't resist putting a link to an interview with my father, who discusses his long career in the BSO on the radio. It is really very entertaining and enlightening, and you also get to hear him play. Yes, I'm very proud of him.
I am active as a composer, a violist, a violinist, a recorder player, and as a teacher. I began my professional musical life as a flutist, and spent a lot of quality time as a baroque flutist, but I no longer have my baroque flute. Now my modern flute spends most of its time tucked away in a drawer, while my violin, viola, and my viola d'amore are often tucked under my chin.
