Our shows with Bruce Gregori’s Trio at Blue Back Square in West Hartford, Connecticut, have officially been canceled due to COVID-19 pandemic. We will reschedule all dates for next year.



Since the shutdown of public schools, colleges, and universities in Connecticut due to COVID-19, I decided to create an e-video series called: “Teaching Online.” This series follows the traditional “how-to” format that consisting of online teaching and learning skills for teachers to use for virtual learning.

Each video is less than 6 minutes. All episodes are available on this website. I am happy to release the pilot episode of this exclusive series.

Think about this word: Homosapian.

The word ‘homo’ means human. And the word
‘sapian’ means think. Put these two words together and homosapian is a human who thinks. However, I do not believe, even the slightest, that we are humans who think.

Similar to composing, our minds work best when
