Music Theater Educators Alliance | National Conference | San Diego, CA
I am looking forward to attending my first conference as a member of this organization, representing The Hartt School Theater Division at the national level. I am especially excited to share and learn about current trends and best practices in musicianship training for musical theater. I am very proud of the program we are developing at Hartt and hope that over the next few years I can contribute to Hartt's reputation as an institution of rigor and innovation in this area.

The Addams Family | Loomis Chaffee School | Windsor, CT
I am excited to work on one of my favorite musicals with the thoughtful, engaged students at Loomis Chaffee. The students at this school are a joy to work with because of their insatiable curiosity and love of learning. Theater director David McCamish has developed a program in which students have the highest respect for the art form and a deep understanding of what it means to be a member of an ensemble. They are the best kind of nerds, and I am always amazed at the growth I see in them over the course of a production.

Matilda | Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts | Hartford, CT
The Academy of the Arts will always hold a special place in my heart, and I am thrilled to be returning there this spring to work on this show, which is just a ton of fun for the audience and performers. I am looking forward to tackling the challenges of the score by Tim Minchin (and the British dialects!) with the students.
