I'm a pianist and college music professor in the Boston area. I used to play cello a lot and had lots of fun playing in orchestras; too bad I never practiced. I also like exploring other creative pursuits such as composing and arranging; movie-making; writing poetry that rhymes; and creating effective translations. This blog features my multimedia musings on music, mind, meaning, and more.

10. The Music Salon
I've been a professional musician all my life, most of it as a classical guitarist. I studied with some great maestros of the guitar: Jose Tomas, Oscar Ghiglia and Pepe Romero. I also have composed my whole life, though not so much as a professional composer as just to get something out of my system. I also spent several years studying musicology which was enormously fascinating. This blog features my rants on classical music, popular culture, philosophy and anything else that catches my fancy.
