Music Ensembles

I have experience coaching the following: 

  • Small to large choruses
  • Chamber ensembles
  • String orchestra
  • Vocal and instrumental soloists


I have worked as an actor, musician, and music director on dozens of productions at Princeton University, Northlight Theatre (Skokie, IL) and Seattle Children's Theatre.

Teaching Artist Reel (2016)

General Music

I teach general music classes that cover a diverse range of topics that include music theory, history, subculture, songwriting and composition, and current events.

Welcome to my web site!

I am a composer, musician and teaching artist from the Chicagoland area, residing in central NJ. My teaching reel (right) showcases work I have done at Princeton University, Northlight Theatre, and The Lewis School of Princeton.  More of my work can be viewed on the Media page.

As an artist in both music and theatre, I am always open for new collaborations, whether on stage or in the classroom.  My greatest joy lies in sharing the skills of creative autonomy to those with eager hearts and inquisitive minds.  I teach both private and group lessons in voice, composition, and songwriting (with specialization in their roles in theatre).
