This section will be the home of 'music lessons' as re-told by student's of Ted. The theme of the lessons will be "what I learned from Ted." It will be the student's own view, as none of us wish to presume to speak for Ted directly. At the same time, it will provide a permanent home for discussions about musical topics that Ted shared and that we would like to share with those who were never able to study with Ted directly.

All links will take you to it's own individual page (inlcuding notes and comments) unless denoted by PDF icon which will allow you to download lesson all by itself.
