The day after I graduated from college I got on a Greyhound bus and traveled for four days and three nights to Mexico to work in a social service project. This led to projects in Greece, Tunisia and Paris. After about two and a half years I began to think I should get a "regular" job and returned to the U. S. where I began teaching music, which had been my major area of study.

My recorder history begins when I needed to play soprano in my first full time teaching job. During a year in Germany I picked up alto and tenor and finally bass for playing in local ensembles. Later I was "instrumental" in introducing the use of recorders to help students give sound to abstract concepts in Rudiments and music education classes at Queens College.

When I retired I began playing in RONY which I enjoy for the interesting music we play as well as for the interesting people who play it together.
