I live in Illinois and am retired (mostly). I started off studying French -- have a Ph.D. in French literature. But, then I ended up working in various capacities at the University of Illinois. Ended up doing mostly computer programming/development. I still do a little bit, but would much rather spend my time singing! I never had time, money, etc. to study or do anything really with music -- always wanted to. So, I'm taking voice and piano lessons now (just started a few months ago). I love all kinds of music, but really like both the folk songs of the 60s and the jazz standards. I tend to go for those songs where the woman is really depressed about some guy that's jilted her! Love that minor key! (Note: I've been happily married now over 30 years....) Go figure! Love to do duets, but am shy -- so if you'd like me to sing with you, leave a message! Marty
