I believe that every child should have the opportunity to have their lives changed through music, just as I have.  As a performer, educator, and clinician, music is a daily part of my life and career and I am grateful for the opportunity to live a life surrounded by music and the arts.
Education Technology
Technology is rapidly transforming education and society and providing new opportunities for learning and personal growth.  I am very involved in music technology, serving as Managing Director of Noteflight, a Hal Leonard company, President of the Technology Institute of Music Educators (TI:ME), and Adjunct Professor of Music Technology at Louisiana State University.  As a Google Level 2 Certified Educator, I am a frequent clinician on education technology and music advocacy.  I also provide professional development to schools and districts across the country. 


Music education enriches lives in ways no other subject can and we must always advocate for the positive benefits of music education.  I am proud to serve as Advocacy Chair of the Massachusetts Music Educator's Association and be on the NAfME Advocacy Leadership Force and the NAMM SupportMusic Coalition. I believe advocacy is not what you do, it is who you are. In every conversation with students, parents, administrators, and community leaders, always take the opportunity to speak about the positive benefits of music education. ​​
