After Chuck put in his time at Marshall University majoring in trombone and minoring in piano, he continued his music studies privately with some of the finest teachers in the world in Philadelphia and in Las Vegas. Dr. Donald S. Reinhardt (trombone), Don Hannah (arranging), Art Sayres (trombone) and Debra Bonner (voice).
Chuck has been singing all his life; he began piano lessons at the age of eight, and trombone at the age of nine. He played six nights a week, playing trombone and singing in his eight-piece band, touring the Midwest and Southeast U.S. — a total of twelve states. The band covered music by Tower of Power, Earth, Wind and Fire, Boz Scaggs, Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago, and most seventies band music which had horns. After touring, he moved to Las Vegas and lived and performed there for eighteen years, played lead trombone in big bands, and performed singing in shows and in the lounges with his wife, a dancer and singer. This was followed with 19 years in Florida: writing, arranging, performing, and teaching.
Jingles were produced in both Las Vegas and in Florida, which credits were used for writer membership in ASCAP.

Forty songs have been written for the original musical entitled “You Didn’t Get Me Yet”, a part scripted and part improvisational farce centering around two performers in a musical. Life at home is in a mad flip-flop of fantasy and reality, as the two leads seem to battle it out to the death. The forty will be pared down to a smaller number in the final production.
