I am retired from being Professor of Music at Jacksonville University in Florida. I was concertmaster of the Jacksonville Symphony for ten years before it became a full-time position.
My principle teacher was Joseph Fuchs, although I studied a summer with Ivan Galamian at Meadowmount and a year with Arthur Grumiaux in Brussels. I shouldn't forget to list Howard Boatwright, who started me on violin and became my first theory teacher. I studied Sonata Class with Louis Persinger for two wonderful years at Juilliard and consider myself one of his students. My ensemble teachers have included Joseph & Lillian Fuchs, Hans Letz, Robert Mann, Artur Balsam and Louis Poulet.
I continue to play sonata performances with my wonderful pianist-wife, Mary Lou Wesley Krosnick, who is a student of Isabel Vengerova and Rosina Lhevinne.
