I am not a trained musician, but I have taken some piano, voice and music theory at Shoreline Community College in Seattle many years ago. I have also had some tutoring in counterpoint. I got hooked on Bach when I heard Glenn Gould play the two and three part inventions and the little preludes and fugues. I got interested in the chorales when I began listening to the cantatas and while studying them in harmony classes.
Much of the work on the chorales and their relationships was done by Charles Sanford Terry, a Bach scholar working in Cambridge about 1910 to 1930. His work still forms the foundation of continuing study of the chorales.
Outdoors, I enjoy birding and gardening.
Here I am, in the hills.
Birds and Birding
Point Reyes near San Francisco is a premier birding area and people come here from all over the world to bird, especially during migrations.
Bolinas Lagoon is a protected wetland in Point Reyes.
There are many small areas of wetland left around the bay, and I like to head out there and bird, especially in winter when there are big populations of ducks and shorebirds.

At home I like to spend time on my Mac making midi files, bird lists, and Web pages. I also enjoy reading and spending time with my cats.
Here I was, 15 years ago, at the computer, more usual than not.
Glenn Gould was very much associated with the music of Bach and is one of my favorite pianists. Here are some web sites devoted to his work.
