Work With Me

I perform and teach improvisation workshops across the U.S.

In 2016, I founded the Game Symphony Workshop, a creative music experience designed for large and small ensembles of all ages. Visit the website to learn more and see the workshop in action.

Selected Clinic Topics

One of my favorite presentations at JEN! Comprehensive, coherent, engaging, entertaining, informative, and organized.

Game Symphony Workshop is a mind-blowing improvisation experience. I was able to take the activities into my high school and college classrooms and see big results!  This workshop is so beneficial for classical musicians who are fearful of sounding bad and making mistakes during improvisation. My ears blossomed, my head exploded, and my creativity soared.
