He was students at the brand new Britain Conservatory of Music, graduating in 1920 and getting the Mason and Hamlin Award. He was called a Knight from the Purchase of Saint Sylvester by Pope Paul VI.

He was highlighted soloist for the very first complete documenting of Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin.
