In 1971, auditioning for the ESU Music Department set me on a whole new path. 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. Other teachers included were Mikhail Pikaluv also Russian, and Dr. Leroy Williams, Music Theory. ALL GREAT TEACHERS!
McMillin and Life, showband in the 1970's. It was a real learning and fun experience writing charts for Bb and Eb horns. Our management team included George David Weiss. Many thanks to my father George Kuhn who along with Don Elbaum, put us in touch with the right people.
This is a 1941Martin 0028G (the G stands for Gut strings, that are now Nylon). Expertly played by Carl Pastore at our meetings.
Thanks go out to his kind daughter, Tina !
