With my background in multiple musical traditions , I not only bring a varied aesthetic and appreciation of music to instruction, but also diverse experience with pedagogical style.  My many years of teaching and learning have prepared me to be flexible and innovative.  I emphasize process;  tirelessly presenting and exploring strategies for addressing challenges, always with compassion and patience.  My ongoing compositional and performing activities provide a vital and contemporary element to my interaction with my students. I am one of them; learning, discovering, exploring and experimenting.
