Started by auditioning for the ESU
Music Department. Started on 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.
Show band McMillin and Life, that is me at 1:00, did extensive touring and recording. We were friends that met at college. It was a real learning experience writing charts for Bb and Eb horns. Our management team included George David Weiss. (look him up!)
Now, I am concentrating on my Classical Guitar. This is a 1942 Martin guitar that I first heard played at our meetings played by Carl Pastore. Thanks go out to his daughter Tina !
