Phy Tur Records on the Rise! Larry Barrett and Ken Banks Make a Positive Difference!

Larry Barrett, founder and CEO of Phy Tur Records, LLC is a great example of why I love teaching. When I call role at the beginning of each semester, I never know what to expect; there’s only one guarantee: I will  have interesting and talented students, and if I’m really lucky..they’ll be as talented as singer/songwriter/producer and local music businessman: Larry Barrett.
