About

I was a combination Band and Choral Director in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public Schools from 1963-1965. I was a Band director in the Fairfax County, Va Public Schools for 35 years and the Prince William. Va Public Schools for 3 years. Additionally, I served a an interim instructor in George Mason University and supervised student teachers a James Madison University. My Bands received many superlative awards over the years.

I’m a graduate of Boston University School of Fine and Applied Arts with a Bachelor of Music Degree. A recipient of a Master of Arts Degree from East Carolina University and have an additional 20 hours in education through UVA. I was nominated for “Music Educator of the Year” by The Virginia Music Educators Association in 1994 and was inducted into The Virginia Band and Orchestra Association’s “Hal of Fame” in 2020.

Upon retirement, I founded and managed a Performing Arts Center (performingartsluray.com), conducted and managed the Page County Community Choir, formed/conducted and managed an 18 voice vocal group ( The Main Street Singer) and formed a community band. Prior to moving to Luray, Va I coached women’s Travel and House League teams. All of the aforementioned activities were accomplished on a voluntary basis. I am very concerned about what is happening in our country as well as in our public schools. Where others have questions, I have solutions.
