Since retiring a few years ago I have continued to receive a constant stream of requests from students who still
wish to study with me. As a result, I have decided to set up a consultation program to fulfill this need. Unlike
traditional lessons, these sessions will last 2-3 hours and are designed to give the student the opportunity to
discuss with me any and all issues they are interested in. Topics may include such things as understanding
and applying the sticking and linear systems that I developed, learning how to play polyrhythms and to work in
odd meters, soloing concepts, technical concerns, finger technique, and a host of other issues.
The sessions will occur on an irregular basis. Some students may only come in one time while others will
return every few months. Those who are traveling a significant distance to come to Boston may wish to two 2-3
days of lessons in a row.
