ABOUT

tawitkin(at)gm...: Got back to my music some years ago after a 30 year layoff. Started studying again, and taking jazz (and some blues) ensemble classes, first at Rivers, now at NEC.

I've taken ensemble classes with Molly Flannery, Alexei Tsiganov, Jamie Stewardson, Kelly Powers, among others. Today, I study with a terrific teacher and gigging drummer, Luther Gray.

It's great to know that I can still learn and improve.

The classic Dave Brubeck Quartet got me into jazz. And he's the reason that I can play at all in odd time signatures. And, of course, I've played with all the greats (through my headset).
