Qualifications & Experience

I am a full-time Composer and Educator, available to teach Musical Composition, Music Theory, Musicianship, Music Fundamentals and Ear-Training.

I have a great passion for music and for music making. Teaching has provided me the greatest opportunity to employ what I have cultivated as a musician. I strive to shed light on complex musical concepts and terminology for those who find intellectual exploration a barrier against pursuing music as an academic discipline.
With careful instruction, I nurture and encourage critical thinking about music and aim to prepare musicians to face the incredible demands of today. I take the time to discover who my students are. I work to connect to their lives, to ascertain the music and musical experience that is a part of them. I aspire daily to teach with excellence and to guide students to effective strategies for learning. Practice and reflection have nourished my capacity to connect with students, to connect them with one another, and all of us to music. I believe these connections illuminate the path to learning.
