identify which instruments you are ordering for. PayPal is accepted.
On another note, I thought I'll pass along a link to a video that was
taken of me at this years Vancouver Christmas Market, the first one
ever, but hopefully the start of a new tradition up here in British
It features an arrangement, that -- as excerpt only -- has been
available on YouTube from me for some time, but here now in full
