About

Born eighty-one years ago in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. Served twenty-six years in RCAF (aircraft maintenance) and twenty years in Real Estate (sales). Retired since 1997.

Began studying music about twenty years ago and play organ and piano reasonably well, ,but for my own enjoyment only. Also have a passing competence with guitar and mandolin. I prefer classical and jazz, and like most other genres, but dislike most of the country output these days , with the notable exception of western swing.
I have taught myself to read and play from lead sheets and can figure out the jazz chords pretty well, but it's a slow process due to my macular degeneration . Just found your website and already have benefitted from it.Thanks.
