Opportunities to play piano became more and more abundant and I switched my professional focus to performing in Piano Bars. I had a residency at The Downhill Hotel, in Ballina Ireland, and was a featured performer at Jacob's in Aarhus Denmark. I then did a stint with Holland America Cruise Line before moving over to Carnival Cruise Line where I stayed for eight years, meeting my wife Heather who was also a pianist for Carnival. We decided to limit our travel and we settled in Manchester, NH. I have been teaching percussion and piano at Music and Arts for more than a year and I continue to enjoy the experience. My fellow teachers maintain a high level of competence and the teaching studio is a lively place to learn the art and fun of music.
