Launching my new website!

I am really happy to be launching this new website which I hope will inform particular music lovers of my various activities, and will also prove to be a great help to those players who wish to tune their basses in fifths or are devotees of the Canadian School of the Double Bass! Besides my recordings and teaching materials which are available in my store already, I will soon add PDF's of solo material written in concert pitch, orchestral parts with bowings and fingerings, as well as videos and properly edited versions of my own transcriptions. I can release much of this material free of charge, but please don't expect it to be very neat!

If you have any particular requests of issues you would like me to address, or pieces of music, just let me know please. I am always happy to advise on how I would approach any given musical passage.

I must thank Travis Harrison of the Winnipeg Symphony without whose help this project and many others would never have seen the light of day! Thank you Travis and best wishes as you begin your season as guest principal bass of the Canadian Opera Company.
