This page is barely started, and is still very much under construction.
This web page provides some links to Web resources about our favorite composers, bands, and musical instruments. Each of the sections below contains its own list of links to WWW resources.
Julie plays piano. Our piano is a Kohler & Campbell studio upright made in the US. Julie likes to play Beethoven, Mozart, and other classical compositions, as well as popular movie and show tunes.
Neal plays classical guitar, rather badly. His classical guitar is a Horabe model 35, made in Japan. He takes lessons from David Gorrie, a classical and jazz guitarist who studied at the Peabody Conservatory.
Both of us are big fans of classical music. Listed below are some of our favorite composers and orchestras, with links to info about them on the web.
Here is a list of some rock musicians and groups we like, along with links to web pages about them.
