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.

Celebrate A Musical Fourth of July with a Four-Year-Old!
We don't happen to have an in-house four-year-old anymore, so I'm happy that this Cassidy's parents were kind enough to share this video of her impromptu (and heartfelt) set of recitations and songs appropriate for the day.
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.
