I have many years of experience in guest conducting bands, orchestras and vocal ensembles throughout the U.S., Canada and
Australia. Since retiring, I have more time to guest conduct and I enjoy working with all level ensembles with the exception of
I bring to my guest conducting the varied life experiences of a teacher, composer, arranger, artist level performer, and author of
unique books on phrasing and conducting. I am experienced in all disciplines both professionally and with student groups including:
Band, Orchestra, Choir, Jazz Choir, and Jazz Ensemble. My guest conducting focuses on teaching expressive playing and singing
and developing the necessary musical imagery to accomplish these expressive performance goals.
Guest-conducting fees are negotiable and travel expenses will be added to the fee if applicable. I live in central New Jersey, within
commuting distance to both the greater New York City and Philadelphia areas.
