[Music] takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence, and whereto.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am a composer living in New York City since 1980.  I grew up in Lancaster PA and moved to New York to study music at Manhattan School of Music. I have been writing music and teaching since then. Although I have my own specific style of composing, I believe each student has her/his authentic and unique voice and I will work with you to develop your own style.  Please see my “Private Lessons” page for more information about studying with me.
