Hi everyone. I'm a Programmer/Analyst, software developer, teacher and musician.

As a programmer/analyst, software developer and database administrator for over 25 years, I've acquired different skills in a number of languages and computer  platforms. I've been a music educator for over 35 years and a professional musician for over 40 years. I've been teaching technology based courses for a number of years now and also have a YouTube channel called "Nerd Knows."   

I hold a Bachelor of Music degree form the Eastman School of Music and a diploma from the Computer Learning Center.

I have a life-long passion for learning, creating things and teaching. I'm very excited to be offering his courses on Udemy and welcome feedback and questions from students.
