I was really happy to present a clarinet clinic at the 75th Midwest Clinic in Chicago...fantastic to be back in-person!

75th Midwest Clinic-after the Dallas Winds concert on Thursday night with a couple of former SFA clarinet students who are now band directors in the DFW Metroplex-Cesar Montelongo and Juan Romero. They performed with the Mansfield Winds at a Wednesday morning performance at the conference!

I didn't get to use this! Because of the corona virus, the 2020 Music for All National Festival was canceled...I was honored to have been asked and I hope I get the chance again in the future. Congratulations to all of the bands selected to perform!

At the Yamaha atelier in Tokyo in 2020 before the pandemic with Hiromu Kokai and Hiroshi Nakajima. Nakajima-san worked on my horns and gave them a good tune-up!
