ACT TWO

With no intermission, Act 2 began after retiring from full time teaching for 34 years. Well really, pandemic March 2020, Act 2 KunzleMusic had it's trial run! Creating the website, editing and publishing old compositions, and starting a virtual lesson studio. Throughout the first year, with continued shut downs, time was spent teaching lessons and master classes via zoom, virtual marching band judging, practicing, and the emergence of new compositions. The gradual come back of live music with performing, conducting, and teaching pursued, and the rest is well . . . all here on the website.
