Eastman - Rochester New Horizons Music
The Birthplace of New Horizons. Founded in 1991 by Dr. Roy Ernst, Eastman School of Music, Rochester, NY
I play the clarinet in the NH Symphonic Band and Clarinet Ensemble. I also play
in the Kodak Band.
I am a Rochester native and attended #8 School and Franklin High. I received my
undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester in 1964 and my D.D.S.
from SUNY Buffalo in 1968. I was a Captain in the U.S. Army from 1969-1970,
serving one year in Vietnam. I practiced dentistry in Rochester and Greece for 38
years and retired in 2007.
I took clarinet lessons at Hochstein Music School for about seven years, and
played in my grade school and high school bands.
I have been married to my wife, Elaine, for 44 years and have two adult daughters.
Deborah lives in Virginia Beach, Va. where she is a psychologist in their school
system. Lisa lives in Seattle, Washington, works as a medical researcher, and is
completing a graduate degree in social work.
My father played clarinet - as does my younger daughter. We enjoyed many years
playing duets and trios together at family gatherings.
