When I have the chance, I love to teach children in the studio, this after 30 years in fine arts and english language arts education.  There is something truly ‘magical’ about working with people in my own space…cranking up the tunes…opening the windows.  Magic!

    VERY pleased to see YOU used my performance of CLORINDA both as a memory of your Father and to share with Website visitors. I have a West L.A. Concert on Sat Jul 27th, a program of ALL old favorite IRISH CLASSC SONGS ~ yes, CLORINDA is included ~ and will send an INVITATION if you live nearby. Kindly let me know! ANDY
