He studied privately through elementary, junior high, high school and college, as well as playing in the jazz and concert bands, singing in the choirs, and participating in competitions.

At Cornish, he studied with Gary Peacock, Julian Priester, Art Lande and James Knapp among others. While in Seattle, Curtis arranged music for the Muzak Corp., played many club dates and recorded many local commercials.
