Which Way to Carnegie Hall: A Journey into Music In this DVD Jon Kimura Parker follows artist featured in their quest to establish themselves in a musical career.

Heart of Chamber Music This DVD features the Jupiter Quartet and Paul Katz, founding cellist of the Cleveland String Quartet.

    We wish to thank you just as before for the sitnnung ideas you offered Jesse when preparing a post-graduate research plus, most importantly, regarding providing all the ideas within a blog post. If we had known of your blog a year ago, we'd have been saved the pointless measures we were taking. Thank you very much.
