Perseverance matters

Your impact is limited by your dreams... and your effort.

In 1984 I met a remarkable man who had a profound impact on my life.

33 years later his perseverance to share with others the same insights he taught me, is spreading.

His impact is reaching thousands of miles and lives

The New Jersey Youth Symphony* percussion section in 1987, just before I moved back to the UK. Evan, Tom (who became my Best Man, and is still a good friend), Adina, and SPB

George Marriner Maull was the Music Director and Conductor of the New Jersey Youth Symphony* since its founding in 1979. I was not good enough to play clarinet with that group, but my percussion skills got me in. A concerto performance and a Junior Scholarship to the Mannes College of Music in New York City also made me eligible for Maestro Maull’s advanced student “Listening Class.” It was in that class that I learned the difference between hearing and listening.

The Simpsons

But that child is now a grown consumer.

…and about to rediscover Classical Music.

Are you ready for that?
