Patrick, with Dr. Karen Gearreald, Braille Music Adviser for the Library of Congress, at the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
Patrick has a Bachelor of Music degree from Baldwin Wallace University in Berea, Ohio and has a 25+ year history as performer, writer, director and teacher. He plays piano, saxophone and guitar, and has an extensive career as a professional singer in music theatre, jazz, opera, Classic Rock and Christian Contemporary music. He has directed numerous stage productions and has led ensembles such as full orchestra, jazz ensemble, handbell choir, and all types of vocal groups.
Along with teaching private music lessons for adults and transcribing songs with "Sibelius" Notation software, he has added braille transcription to his skill set. While Music Braille is his specialty, he will eagerly work on Literary and Proofreading projects, as well.
"With a final score of 99.7%, I believe Patrick has earned the distinction of the most outstanding student who has ever completed the Braille Music course."

"Patrick knows that the little things mean a lot in braille music transcription. He pays close attention to the details and the results reflect that focus. When we need to subcontract a transcription assignment, we know we can rely on him to get it right."
Founder & President
"Patrick has not only the gift of exceptional talent, but a love of music, and a belief in its power to comfort, heal, and inspire. He inspires my confidence and enthusiasm that an old dog can actually learn both voice and piano. For some reason it has been a long inner wish of mine. I consider Patrick the best teacher, of any kind, I have ever had."
