He is an adjudicator for the Washington State Music Teachers Association, and is a board member of the Idaho Music Teachers Association. He has presented at the College Music Society national conference, as well as for the Wisconsin Music Teachers Association and other groups. An avid fan of rock music, jazz, and hip-hop, Roger’s non-musical interests include cooking, playing chess, reading, surfing, and skiing.
