I’m starting a new chapter in my career next month as the new elementary music teacher in the Ellenville CSD. I’m very excited to get to work with young musicians and assist them in taking their musical skills to the next level. I’ll also be teaching some general music classes, in addition to band.
As far as my professional playing opportunities go, I will still be active with the Big Blue Big Band, the Swing Shift Orchestra, the New York Wind Symphony, and when needed, the Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra. I’d also like to perform a solo recital this year somewhere in the Hudson Valley.
I have some ideas for upcoming conferences, and if they materialize I’ll be sure to post them here.
The article project of this site is still in progress, and I hope to have my analyses uploaded shortly.
