NOW AVAILABLE! FACE MASKS FOR MUSICIANS Beautiful and original design to wear while playing your Woodwind and Brass instruments!!

Unhappy with the prospect of not playing live with others and dissatisfied with other mask designs, I designed sturdily built to last, with reinforced seams, bridge, and double upper and lower elastic straps with adjusters for extra support and a perfect fit! Many thanks to Michael Winograd, Dan Blacksberg and my Mom for their help getting this venture off the ground. It’s still evolving but here is my funny promo video! Also if you don’t play horn you can use it for drinking fancy drinks during pandemic cocktail hour! Please feel free to message me with any questions you have!

You can check out mask designs and other handmade items at my ETSY store!

• MUSIC LESSONS! I’m giving online lessons on flute, saxophone, clarinet, singing, composition and improvisation! Please contact me directly if you’re interested!

Recording/Overdubbing/Arranging for your music needs: I am available for recording, arranging, making transcriptions and producing, creating short sound tracks as well recording woodwinds and vocals via my home studio. Please inquire!
