My greatest influence is my high school music teacher, Mrs. Bella Tillis, who is still coming to my concerts and for whom I wrote "Fern Hill" which is part of the Dylan Thomas Trilogy.It was the first large scale thing I ever wrote.It was a gift for her and her chorus at Midwood High School in Brooklyn.She was the one who encouraged me to go into music when I was young because my parents did not want me to go into music.She's now at every concert that I do and she looks exactly the same as in the '50s.Some teachers really do change your life and she was certainly one of them.And not just for me, but for a lot of people.

Unattained Ambition:
I love painting.When I was a kid my goal was to be a cartoonist.What I found to be the most inventive and artistic things that I ever saw were Disney's films like Dumbo, which is basically like a musical.It's so extraordinary.
