Welcome to my website! You're listening to the fourth movement of J. S. Bach's Violin Sonata #3 that I
performed recently at the University of Central Arkansas. This was a transcription I did as a senior saxophone student at
Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory many years ago. You can hear the rest of this performance on my sound files page. Here
you'll be able to listen to sound files demonstrating classical and jazz saxophone playing, access some valuable practice
exercises and share ideas to help develop your overall musical skills. This should give you some insight as to my performing
and teaching philosophy over the past 30 years, most recently in the School of Music at Texas Christian University in Fort
Worth, Texas. I'm always in the process of adding to this site, so please check back for updates. As always, please
feel free to contact me at this address or my TCU address (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or feedback you may have regarding
this site. I hope that this will stimulate your interest in performing on the saxophone in a variety of styles.
I'll share my experiences as a classical and jazz soloist with you and
hopefully show you how it's possible to perform with confidence in any musical setting. You'll see photos of
some of the memorable musical experiences and the wonderful musicians I've had the honor of working with over the years.
Finally, you'll view some photos of those who have been my anchor and supported me over the years, the members of my family.
I've just taken advantage of our rare Texas "snow days"
to add a few sound files to my sound files page. You'll hear recent performances of Bonneau's "Caprice en
forme de Valse," Montbrun's "6 Etudes Musicales" and the premiere of "Brilliant Blue" by Dr. Till
MacIvor Meyn along with some jazz combo selections. Please feel free to comment on any of these performances and share
them with those who may also be interested in saxophone performance in a variety of settings. As always, if you are
interested in hosting me as a guest performer or clinician, you can contact me by clicking on the "contact me" heading
on the navigation bar.
