My classical music career started by auditioning for the ESU Music Department, starting on clarinet and eventually switching to classical guitar. Dimitri Erdely (shown), from Russia, was Edinboro's classical guitar instructor at this time. He had my attention from day one. My only other teacher was Mikhail Pikaluv, also Russian. GREAT TEACHERS!
This is Disco/Show band McMillin and Life. It was a real learning experience writing charts for Bb and Eb horns. Our management team included George David Weiss. Many thanks to my father George Kuhn
and especially Don Elbaum who put in touch with the right people.
Now, I am concentrating on Classical Guitar. This is a 1941 Martin guitar, with nylon strings, that I first heard expertly played by Carl Pastore at our meetings.
Thanks go out to his kind daughter, Tina !
