Remarks: “Infinity’s influence on my performing career was absolutely immeasurable. Having been paired with such a great teacher and such great colleagues at that vital early stage in my career was the best thing that could have happened to me. In addition, Infinity gave me opportunities to improvise, perform, learn, grow and teach not only on my own instrument, but with the Infinity Choral and in styles of music I had never had the opportunity to learn before. The environment Infinity crafted surrounded me with like-minded musicians who taught me a much more than just what I learned in lessons and rehearsals. That environment focusing on collaboration was key to developing as a well-rounded musician.
After graduating from the Infinity program I went on to study double bass performance focusing on jazz and, primarily, classical music. Over the years since Infinity I’ve had the opportunity to play with chamber ensembles across  the north-eastern and mid-western US. I’ve had the opportunity to perform as principal, section and section soloist with professional symphony orchestras in NY, PA, OH, CT, VT and MA. Much of my success in classical music is due to the practice regimens and theory study I learned from my studies at Infinity.”
