A student of the late Igor Hmelnitsky (Sydney, Australia), I played professionally for many years as Musical Director to singers such as James Pegler, Kamahl, Sir Harry Secombe and Gordon Boyd. I used to own and operate the Stoliarsky School of Music (www.stoliarsky.com.au) in Brisbane (Australia). The School excelled in having young pianists and violinists at a very high standard. I now live and work in the USA. I arrange pieces (mainly hymns, various instruments) for my own children to perform.
I have written Ian Hodge's Read, Write & Play Music a program that teaches students how to read, write and play their own music. Details at www.readwriteplay.com.
I also have broad experience in management consulting, teaching business owners how to run their enterprises like a symphony orchestra: everyone in tune, all following the score, and watching the conductor at all times. See www.clarion-communications.com.
