Teaching at WVU-Morgantown Fall 2010

Monday, August 30th, 2010

I am pleased to announce that I will be serving as Sabbatical replacement for the esteemed Dr. Andrew Kohn this Fall. (Fall 2010 ONLY!)  While Dr. Kohn delves into the music of Allan Blank, I will be working with his bass students at West Virginia University in Morgantown. (Fall 2010 only) I look forward to meeting some new bassists this week!

Also to note: Dr. Kohn will also be our guest at Shenandoah Conservatory Thursday Sept. 2 at 7 pm in Goodson Hall! Come out!

Even though the WVU studio is robust, I will still have an open hour here and there on the days I am in town. If you are in the Morgantown area and want to play for me, contact me here and we can try and set something up. Otherwise, I look forward to deeply investigating the local coffee houses!
