    I just have begun to explore your site and can’t wait to go over it with my grandson, a far more sophisticated musician than I am. His name is Ben Ertman and i do hope he will get in touch with you. It is exam time, however and he may not have time right now. I know that the Schumann decoding will fascinate him. He is a real musician as he uses the piano for his relaxation and no one ever tells him to practice. However, his disability clearly affects hie playing capacity. He reads music easily and enjoys the theory. I am so excited that we were able to hear you and enjoy your comments. I do hope Ben can meet you some time.

    PS As you lived in Wayland and are the same age as my eldest daughter,wich elementary school did you attend? We moved out of Wayland when i went to Graduate school at Clark so that my kids could use public transportation.

    PPS I discovered a book I forgot I had by my uncle. “Selective Record Guide” published in 1950, after he was forced to stop working by Multiple Sclerosis. He worked with Columbia Records very briefly due to his disease. (1939-1942)

    PPS He was also a colleague of Nicolas Sominsky
