I teach tuba and euphonium at a small State University. Also do marching band, concert band, supervise student teachers and what-ever else need to be done.

Generally the smaller the school, the more things you get (have) to do.

Playing and teaching music is very satisfying for me!

I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Until then I work as a tech support analyst (help desk) for an insurance company.

I study with the one and only Dr. Dennis AsKew at UNC-Greensboro (maybe he'll let me play the Vaughan-Williams now).

Do I know you? Or, more to the point, are we related?

There aren't too many Denneys in the world, though there is a relative abundance of Dennys. (Of course, both come from the same root: 'Denn's, meaning "of the Danes" in medieval French, for Danish settlers in the Normandy and Brittany areas.)

I teach a variety of subjects at the Singapore International School in Saigon, Vietnam (yes, they still call it that). I am also a frelance tuba player, quite well-known in the ex-pat community as well as to the most of the serious musicians in HCMC.

I also write articles on pop culture of the 20th century.
One tragedy after another one. Will be leaving Needles soon and moving to the Los Angeles area. I am so sorry for anyone planning to do one of the projects in Laughlin I never got to start.
