He teaches continuing education courses in music history at several universities and colleges, including Ryerson’s LIFE Institute, George Brown College, LLIR at Glendon College, The Miles Nadal JCC, The Royal Conservatory of Music, Hot Docs Curious Minds, and numerous other learning centres throughout Ontario and beyond.
A professional musician equally at home in jazz clubs, concert halls, and theatres, he’s appeared at Roy Thomson Hall accompanying performances with The Seniors Jubilee, the largest talent showcase in North America — and on CBC radio and television as well as JazzFM as a pianist, recording artist, and radio show co-host with the late Jeff Healey.
