The name of the sender is on every message - can't miss catching it. I
posted the above. And no, I didn't "jump down that person's throat";
another person did vigorously complain. I agree in a sense with that
particular person, only not as vehemently, and I _did_ provide the
information in any case. There were two parts to the question, if you
remember - "who's the instructor at Duke?" (easy) and "can anyone
recommend a teacher" (not so easy). I _am_ suggesting that people do the
easy part themselves if at all possible.

"The phenomenon is too variable for proper study" often
translates from "I don't know how to get musicians to do
anything twice the same" - A. H. Benade
