E-MAIL: Michael Kurek has two e-mail addresses: For discussions of performing music and other composition questions, please use Mickeykurek@aol.com. Incidentally, Michael does NOT generally use the nickname “Mickey,” but the address was chosen simply because the screen name MichaelKurek was already taken by someone else on AOL. For academic business, letters of recommendation, etc., please use firstname.lastname@example.org — Depending on who you are, please address him as Michael, as Dr. Kurek, or as Professor Kurek.
