the heart of the city
in the distance
a drum falls
by Drake Mabry (1950-)
My pathway of life has been both surprising and rewarding. My main motivation has been to seek opportunities that fulfilled two principal requirements - the possibility to offer something productive and at the same time be immersed in a learning experience.
Throughout this time I've worked as a musician in classical, jazz and world musics, composed music for beginners to professionals, been a teacher and director in universities and conservatories of music, created several businesses, donated my time when needed, and even served as a member of the French Ministry of Culture's "Commission of Experts". I also enjoy travelling, discovering, laughing, and silence.
And at 67 I'm still forging ahead.
