Started by auditioning for the ESU Music Department. Started on clarinet and switched to classical guitar. Dimitri Erdely (shown), from Russia, was the classical guitar instructor. 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.
Now, I am concentrating on Classical Guitar. This is a 1942 Martin guitar, with nylon strings, that I first heard played by Carl Pastore at our meetings.
Thanks go out to his daughter Tina !
