I will be presenting at the national conference of the Music Teachers’ National Association in Spokane, Washington, in March.  Topic:  Historical Improvisation and “Standard Repertoire” as Equal Partners in Concert.

The manuscript of the improvisation book is done and in the hands of the editors.  I have a few more musical examples to complete, but mostly the book is finished.

I’m now starting on an outline for a second book on fugue improvisation, kicking around plans for a second tour of Europe, and laying groundwork for an improvisation festival.
