I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe!

Due to the COVID-19 virus all of my gigs have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.  Both myself and my wife are full-time self-employed jazz musicians who play for a living.  I normally perform six nights a week in the Chicago area. 

As an effort to work from home, I have opened a Skype teaching studio. If you are interested please visit my Teaching Page or email me -

Also, while I am furloughed you can hear me perform in a variety of settings on You Tube

I deeply appreciate your support!

See you when this is over...
