About meI enjoy reading and re-reading most of the great classics of the Western canon, but also have an interest in African, West Indian and Asian literatures in English. I enjoy reading poetry, especially that of Emily Dickinson, W. B. Yeats, Robert Frost, Henry W. Longfellow, Umberto Saba, Anthony Hecht and much of Tennyson. I teach music (piano) from my private studio at home, and have an interest in music scores, musicology and biographies of musicians. J. S. Bach's organ music, Brahms' piano and chamber music, Beethoven piano sonatas, Gyorgy Ligeti's etudes for piano, Mahler symphonies, Shostakovich's Preludes and Fugues for piano and Bartok's String Quartets 4, 5 and 6 are among my favourite music.
