As passionate as I am about making music, I am equally passionate about developing the artistry of our future generations. I take pride in guiding composers and songwriters in honing their technical craft, nurturing their creative sensibility, while also providing them with performance opportunities.
For more than a decade, I have served as Lecturer of Music in the Studio Composition department within the Conservatory of Music at the State University of New York at Purchase College.
