I am a music educator with over a decade of experience.

However, my time spent working as a classroom assistant with students with disabiltiies opened my eyes to how a lack of teacher support and training deprives some students of a music education.

I choose to work in inclusive music education because I believe that music teachers want every student to have access to music making.

They don't always have the support or tools to do so, and I want to change that.

I am also a strong believer in popular music education, and in teaching the music our students are listening to and are interested in. Coming from a background in guitar education, I have found a strong overlap in popular music education and accessible music education.

As a consultant and professor, I believe it is crucial for me to continue working in the field of public education in order to keep my pedagogy meaningful for teachers like you!
