Music is Food for the Soul

Hello and welcome to my profile page.

I am a full time Piano teacher with 20 years teaching experience. Over the years though, I have also enjoyed composing music in a variety of different styles and being an AJ author has allowed me to develop that hobby even further.

Since I was about 10 years old, I have been a fan of film composers like John Williams, Bernard Herrmann, John Barry, Jerry Goldsmith etc and I’d like to think that their influence can be heard a little bit in some of my own compositions. You can keep your novelists, poets and painters…for me, the most admirable artists have always been the great composers. My profile image is of the Dvorak Hall in Prague, Czechoslovakia, where the sampled instruments that I use in many of my compositions were recorded.
