Woods was originally a woodwind player specializing in tenor sax, flute and clarinet. He began to take the piano seriously when the pianist in his high school Jazz ensemble (The Jazz Executives) joined another band. Since the band could not play without a pianist, Woods starting playing the piano and never did get back to any of his woodwinds.
Today, Woods has turned his time and talent toward sharing his thoughts and feelings with the world in form prose & poetry. In addition, he is directing and producing several video projects that feature his music and poetry. He now resides in Las Vegas, and performs around the world.
