Please see below for more information about my services as composer, pianist, and educator:
I am happy to consider commissioning opportunities of any size or genre, including works for personal occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, memorials, etc). Particular areas of expertise for me include music for dance, vocal music, solo piano, and chamber works.
I have great respect for the substantial investment that commissioning a composer can take. It is vital to the survival of the arts that the process continue, so I encourage you to consider supporting new work in this way. As a return on your investment, here is what I can offer:
1) A finished, signed copy of the engraved score
2) A notice in the score and in the official program notes of your role in the creation of the piece
3) Some autograph sketch or score material (if requested)
4) Acknowledgment on my website
5) A recording of the work’s premiere (or other available performance)
6) Most important: the existence of a new piece of music and the knowledge that you made it possible
More information, including a basic pricing guide, can be found in my commissioning packet.
For a list of prospective new works seeking funding, please see my most recent specs for proposed projects.
I hold a Doctor of Music degree in piano performance from Northwestern University, as well as performance degrees from Indiana University and New England Conservatory. I’m an experienced recitalist, chamber musician, and collaborative pianist, and I’m available for all of the above, including performances of new music. I also have extensive experience performing with dancers.
Pricing will depend on specifics; please inquire!
TEACHING & COACHING
I have over a decade of experience teaching music at the college/conservatory level. This includes music theory, aural skills, keyboard harmony, music history/appreciation, and piano performance. I’ve given masterclasses in piano and composition, and I’ve also taught music courses for dancers at NYU and Peridance.
I don’t currently have video examples of lectures/masterclasses, but I can share this conversation I led at NYU with Arnold Greissle-Schönberg (grandson of the composer).
Please inquire for private lessons, masterclasses, and more!
