Hey my friends I have gift certificates for sale for the Christmas Holiday Season. What better way than to say I LOVE YOU than through the gift of music lessons!!! Lesson are given in studio and via FaceTime


God has blessed me again during my 50th anniversary as a violinist. For the second time in my teaching career, one of my 8th grade violists ranked as the number one junior high violist in Region 9 of Texas this past Saturday at regional orchestra tryouts. He competed against 85 other violists for this honor. I last produced the number one violist in this region back in 2007. That student is now on scholarship as a Viola performance major at Sam Houston State University. One of my other 8th grade violists won the penultimate chair in the Viola section of the regional Philharmonic Orchestra. One of my seventh grade violinists won fourth chair of the second violin section of the Philharmonic Orchestra. Over 200 violinists tried out for two orchestras. I am so proud of these students who won chairs. And I am equally proud of the other students who competed at this event. I never dreamed that my students would be honoring me in such a big way during this special milestone in my musical life. I want to thank all of my past and present students for their presence in my life. I love you all!

As I continue to celebrate my 50th year as a violinist, I keep receiving good news from my current and former students. My former viola student, Aidan McMorrow, who just graduated from The Woodlands High School in June 2015, is now a freshman at Penn State. He recently auditioned for the Campus Orchestra at Penn State and he is now seated as third chair of the viola section, with the title of Assistant Principle. I am so very proud of his great accomplishment there, especially since he is just starting his academic career as a freshman. Aidan was also a member of the Chamber Orchestra at The Woodlands High School for three years, and in 2014 and in 2015, his quartet received a One at the Texas State Solo and Ensemble Competition in Austin, the higest ranking any group or soloist can receive at the state level. In 2015, he also competed with his solo and received a Two at this same competition, which is an absolutely great score at the state level. Aidan is picture on the right and my other former student, violinist Nico Carswell, is on the left. Nico just graduated from The Woodlands High School also, and he, too, was in the Chamber Orchestra there for the past three years. His quartet received a One at the Texas State Solo and Ensemble Competition in 2014 and in 2015, and he also received a Two at this same contest for his solo in 2015. Nico is a freshman at the University of Houston and he is playing in the second violin section of the highest ranked orchestra at the University of Houston. I am bursting wtih pride that he accomplished this great feat as a freshman. Congratulations to these two outstanding students who enriched and blessed my life as their teacher. I can't wait to see what they do next!!



I would like to congratulate my two high school seniors who tried out for regional orchestra and won chairs in the Regional Philharmonic Orchestra. One is a violinist and the other is a violist. I think this is the first time in the history of my studio that all senior high and junior high students who tried out for regional orchestras won chairs in them. Hurrah for my talented students. This region of Texas is EXTREMELY competitive and it is a huge accomplishment to succeed at these auditions. All will be playing in their regional orchestra concerts on Saturday, November 22, Saint Cecilia Day. Saint Cecilia is the patron saint of music, musicians and art. How appropriate it is that they will be performing on a day that is important for music and for musicians.



Well, maybe I should explain that all four of my junior high students who tried out for regional orchestra won chairs in regional orchestral Two violinists and one violist made Symphony, the upper orchestra, and one violist made Philharmonic, the second orchestra. I am so happy and pleased for them. It was a lot of hard work and lots of practicing, but they made it. Now I just have to teach them their music for the concert which will be on Saint Cecilia Day, the Patron Saint of Music and Musicians Day, November 22.


It [Didn't] Come Easy," but I will be going to Ringo Starr's concert in The Woodlands, Texas tonight, Friday, October 10. I have waited 50 years to see a Beatle in concert. In September 1964, my father took my oldest brother to see The Beatles when they performed at the Indiana State Fair, but he did not take me to this concert. Fifty years later, I will now get to realize a childhood dream. Peace and Love!!


It's Festive Friday in the studio as I welcome the return of a former violin student who has been in Scotland the past two years while his father was on special assignement for his company, and is now back home for his senior year. I think he and I will play this song today to celebrate his return: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeTgx_pj6m8


So how does one cope with 100 degree temperatures in Houston? One plays cool songs like "Low Rider" and "Free Bird" on our violins in my studio!


My students and I will gear up for the Fourth of July by playing patriotic music this week and the next. By the way, the studio will be closed on July 4, 5, and 6 in observance of this holiday.


Happy Hump Day! For me, it will be a day of being in the studio from 10am to 8pm giving violin and viola lessons to some very fantastic students! I think we will have to play some Beatles music today in order to keep celebrating their 50th anniversary of coming to America. It is my sacred duty to teach the music of The Beatles!
