"Spring Awakening" at The Hartt School, Spring 2020

"25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" at Loomis Chaffee School, April 2020

I spent the fall creating an original movie musical with a group of 20 Hartt Theatre students. After three months of writing, rewriting, rehearsing, filming and editing, our show, "Far from the Tree," streamed from December 11-20. You can listen to one of my favorite pieces of the show, the song I wrote called "Braver," on my Compositions page.

On May 5, I shared my presentation "Building Better Humans: Empathy & Self-Expression in the Music Class" with an online audience through the Tennessee Music Educators Association's program "Keeping the Beat." You can watch the hourlong presentation on my Nerdstuff page.
