I have very deep knowledge of chamber and orchestral music, both as a performer and as a music theorist (with a PhD in music theory). (I also work professionally on college music textbooks.) I am an active chamber and orchestral player, and have been a principal player in many orchestras, as well as member of non-classical groups in folk, rock, and other styles. I improvise and encourage students to develop abilities for playing by ear, improvising, or composing. I feel strongly that a good understanding of music is essential for good performance of any kind of music.
I love helping students finding their own voice both through classical repertoire and through improvising, and especially, discovering the joys of communicating musically with other players.
