What's New



I hope the New Year is starting off healthy and prosperous for everyone, and that you are all on the way to creating the life you desire. Let’s help each other do that!


There’s a lot of cool performances and projects on tap for me, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with so many multitalented folks - many of whom are family and close friends. Come out and support what you can !

By the way …

Last year, I officially co-founded “Creative Strings Improvisers Ensemble LLC” with my wife, the amazing violinist / composer Gwen Laster. We are an El Sistema  affiliated program, and we are “off and running” creating masterclasses, workshops, virtual concerts and professional development workshops for music instructors. If you are a parent, educator or independent school organization - and are seeking a progressive, well-rounded musical experience for young musicians - go to our links, and consider enrolling your young, creative music students in our program. We would love to work with them!
