I believe all my singers should have the skills to not only sing beautifully but to understand where the piece came from, how to decode the language, rhythm, and intervals and to gain and greater scope of how vast our world is through music. I love to facilitate critical thinking through hands-on student leadership, to help promote cultural understanding through diverse repertoire, and to engage our audiences and students with creative concert planning and execution using all forms of media and art.
