I'm still a little bitter about The Blue Man Group !  I was told by their Casting Director that I seemed like a perfect candidate for an audition....until she found out I was only 5'9".....apparently, their minimum height requirement is 5'10" exceptions!   I thought she was joking initially......I guess size really DOES matter!

This is just a little note to announce the new-and-improved !

Primarily dedicated to increasing people's awareness of the saxophone family, this site serves as an online museum of woodwind instruments and their history (with photos and almost 100 Mp3 sound clip demos.) It is also a resource for composers and performers, and a notice-board about my current musical activities.  Currently under development is a "resources" section for student saxophonists, with suggested repertoire, study materials, and equipment for the entire saxophone family.

The galleries feature many new photos and sounds of unusual instruments, including a bevy of ethnic and historical woodwinds from around the world, and pages dedicated to the bass and contrabass saxophones .

The site has undergone a considerable overhaul in the past few weeks,  so if you haven't visited in a while, there's plenty of new places to explore and sounds to hear!  Please feel free to forward this to friends and students who might be interested.

Best regards,
