Everyone is an artist! I lead music, sound, and multidisciplinary arts from early childhood education to adult education in-person and online. As a teaching artist, I use the arts to encourage students' sense of wonder, understanding of themselves and their experiences, and engagement in the world. I tailor each project to the interests of teachers and students, needs of schools and equipment available (use of found objects, acoustic instruments and digital music production possible).

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

The key to a creative process is have fun, build trust and start from individual experience. I teach through experiential learning so students learn and understand through doing.
Projects include:
Improvisation with band and orchestral instruments
a. How-to's: jamming online
b. Recording and sharing audio
Recycle orchestra
a. Exploration of materials and listening games
b. Construction of instruments using 2-3 pieces from the recycle bin
c. Creation: we play!
Message in a Bottle
a. Observations of sights and sounds in environment
b. Collaborative composition of a music video
Podcast production
a. Field recordings of stories and sounds using call phones
b. Editing using free online apps
