Question and Answer
Would you list some recent accomplishments?
I'm an active performer, teacher, conductor, composer and author with professional experience in a wide variety of musical styles, performing and teaching contexts and age groups/abilities.
What is your approach to teaching?
Education is my investment in the future of music as a pastime, as a profession and as a vital part of our human experience. Whether I am in a classroom or a choir room, a concert hall or a sanctuary, the power of music and the awesome responsibility that comes in teaching music continues to take my breath away.
How do you help your students get the most out of your class?
Always be relevant. Always. How will this information/history/theory affect YOU in your work and art YOU want to create? Let's find that connection and then learn the material.
