Started by auditioning for the ESU
Music Department. Mainly clarinet and switched to classical guitar. My instructor was Dimitri Erdely (shown). From Russia, he had my attention from day one. My only other teacher was Mikhail Pikaluv, also from Russia.
This is Disco/Show band McMillin and Life, that is me at 1:00, we did extensive touring and recording. It was a real learning experience writing charts for Bb and Eb horns. Our management team included George David Weiss.
Now, I am concentrating on Classical Guitar. This is a 1942 Martin guitar, with nylon strings, that I first heard played at our meetings played by Carl Pastore. Thanks go out to his daughter Tina !
