Thanks to All...

I'd like to offer a deep, personal thanks to world-class guitar virtuosos Tuck Andress, Jimmy Bruno, Stevan Pasero, and all the rest, for their inspiring comments and great endorsements! Of course, the site couldn't be successful without your support, too.


With that in mind, I'd also like to thank each and every one of you for making Vision Music what it's become today. Many of you have taken the time to write and offer kind words of encouragement (click here or above) for the ongoing effort to inspire others.

''What an awesome and unselfish website!''

- J.L. Klegseth (Guitarist)




This website is dedicated to the loving memory of my late parents. Mom gave up her music career at the age of 26, to raise the "Coach" and his four younger brothers.

My father was the greatest jazz trombonist that I ever heard. He taught me to work hard and never take my love of music and sharing the knowledge with others for granted.

Thanks for everything Pop, and keep on swingin'!
