My Interests

All of my interest are centered around the field of music. I enjoy music performance, music education, music history, and music research.

Books and Links

I am currently reading a book entitled Long Lost Blues by Peter C. Muir. The author writes about the blues music genre during the period from 1900 to the first world war and how blues music coexisted with the populal music during that period. Most of the examples from the blues genre are offered and supported from published sheet music. This is due to the fact that the recording of music was still in its infancy.
