Other highlights include his daughter Sara, inventing a metronome, writing a book, and founding a business called RHYTHMSOURCE.
Formal education includes Lick Wilmerding High School, a Bachelors at SF Conservatory of Music, a Bachelors and Masters at Juilliard, Post-Grad diploma at Mannes, a teaching certificate, and two Masters in Conducting.
