Long time friend Greg Starr, Pianist - Composer, and I have collaborated
on one of his original piano pieces, "June"
                                  using the warmth of my Fluegel Horn.                                          (Click HERE to listen!)
                    Greg's latest newsletter can be found HERE. 
 Mr. Starr's "Quiet Rain Music" specializes in creating music to quiet
your world, to soothe your soul.  Music that lets your mind
wander and dream. He's committed to creating high quality music
 that brings balance and peace into your hectic life.
  I'm thrilled to be a part of his musical world! I trust you will as well!
