I have lots of experience in just about every genre of music. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of Michigan and also did a 3 year hitch in the 77th Army Band at Ft. Sill, OK, switched services and did another 3 years, and 3 months in Navy Band Great Lakes in Illinois. I was also principal tuba in the Lawton (OK) Philharmonic Orchestra during my last year in the army. I have played in rock bands, big band and combo jazz groups, polka, Christian rock, blues and country groups.
