"Since God
is the highest perfection,
the harmony composed
for his praise
should follow
the strictest rules
that perfection can claim,
as far as human imperfection
can realize them."
-- Johann Josef Fux, 1725

"I provide the very best
in music education.
The successes of my students
are evidence of their commitment
and skill."
