Whew! 2014 was quite the year… Here’s a recap of some of the highlights.
The year kicked off with a trip to Cleveland, OH to play with the UR Brass Choir at the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH.
I was given this award by the Eastman Community Music School. Very grateful for all my students and colleagues here. It’s such a wonderful school for the Rochester community!
I was invited to teach for Guitar Workshop Plus again for the two sessions in Toronto and for the first time at the Vancouver campus. Truly an amazing experience!

I was very excited to announce that I began teaching electric guitar in addition to classical at UB during the Fall semester!
Ended the year strong with giving a presentation at the NYSSMA Winter Conference!
Aside from all these professional activities, I had a huge milestone in my personal life. I got MARRIED!
Also, I had an amazing trip to Korea with my wife for her sister’s wedding. I had not been back in over 12 years! It was awesome to see my family and meet many of new extended family on my wife’s side!
Most of our family and friends in Korea that we got to see on this trip!
This is all the insane food we ate while we were there!
Twas a crazy year! Happy 2015 to all and may your year be filled with many joys!
