Lifetime music teacher 'taught the whole person':
'A very cultured man who knew about music, art, poetry, history, language, diction and style'
(Montreal Gazette, 14th May, 2006)


364 address which one doesn't forget easily:
memories of many great voice lessons...
of Jan cooking scrambled eggs for me after one of them...
of the house concerts...
of Scottie and all the Simons family...
and, yes, the Montréal snow...
