Copyright Information:
CDs of concerts/recitals are made available for educational use only and I can only distribute them to students, parents of students, performers, composers, and faculty involved in the event.  Distribution of any recording is unlawful without written permission/licensing from the work's copyright owner and the performers involved. It is the responsibility of the person requesting a recording to secure the necessary permission/licenses when necessary.

It is not a problem, if you need to cancel a book recording.  Please try to let me know 24 hours in advance if possible.  Sometimes I need to travel unexpectedly, therefore I also reserve the right to cancel a booked recording without any consequence.  This seldom occurs, and will only happen due to circumstances beyond my control.
