A trained church musician, Cliff spent 24 years with the Princeton University Bookstore Music Shop, where he developed his expertise in choral, organ, and orchestral repertoire. Now, with nearly 40 years in the music business, Cliff is known for his seemingly endless knowledge of the music industry and the vast choral music community.
Cliff holds a masters’ degree in church music from Westminster Choir College. He has an ear for music and a memory for the details of the composer, publisher and distributor. Customers rely on his depth of knowledge—and his personal enthusiasm—when searching for and selecting sheet music for themselves, their choral groups and their students.
Cliff shares his love of music through Cliff’s Blog, where he periodically provides suggestions, seasonal favorites and reviews of compositions.
