BIOGRAPHY

Welcome to my website friends!!
Born and raised in upstate New York,  I've had the opportunity to perform all over this country in some extremely fun venues.
While piano is my first love, I simultaneously was singing and harmonizing to everything. That harmonization and ear for music can be attributed to Sharon, Lois and Bram of the Canadian trio of the same name as well as the television series starring the trio titled The Elephant Show.
Aside from being a pianist, I have performed on various stages coast to coast as well as NYC cabaret stages and Off-Broadway.
I've produced and written a few benefit concerts for local charities including The Make-A-Wish Foundation. I also speak at a medical conference frequently as a patient advocate.s

 

Roy recently started orchestrating and arranging. His new musical Weird!: The Musical written by Shawn Forster, Dani Ryan and David Reckess premiered October 2018 in Central New York and is currently on an educational tour. 

When not performing, teaching, music directing or speaking, I can often be seen sitting in and arranging for Elizabeth Joy Terrell and the band Modern Muse. Modern Muse covers the jazz standards as well as finds different interpretations of familiar pieces as well as pop songs old and new.
