Music is a gift from God that I began to enjoy as a child back in my hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. I've had many wonderful experiences because of mentors who were passionate about expressing and sharing that gift. My parents allowed me to take advantage of the many opportunities there were available to develop as a musician.
My first choir director Linda Bosela got me involved in playing the cello. Charlie Hogg was my JH music teacher who led the band, theatre and hand bell choir. Russ Weil, director of the Hamilton All Star Jazz Band which just celebrated its 30 year Anniversary and Glenn Mallory of the Hamilton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra which celebrated its 50th Anniversary Concert were inspirations in the formative years. There are so much more I am thankful for guiding me.
Performing in the military on sax (Ceremonial Guard of Canada), touring the U.S. and Europe with the Continental Singers, inspired by Bob Feller to earn a Performance Music Degree from Biola University, serving at Faith Christian Community Church where I met my wife, Roni, running an Entertainment Company and being a part of hundreds of celebrations are just a few of the exciting highlights I've experienced as a musician.
Now my role is to be an advocate, build relationships and equip music educators and their students to make great music. Through music, education participants develop skills to powerfully express themselves and grow in many ways including leadership, teamwork, perseverance & creativity. Music & Arts has the nation's most extensive range of instruments for sale or rent, skilled techs to do repairs and a dedicated network of professionals to provide lessons or clinics. As part of the M&A team, my goal is to be an invaluable resource to serve the music community of which I am glad to be a part.
