After spending the past six months in Paris, I couldn't be happier to return to New York. Don't get me wrong-- Paris is incredible-- but I sure did miss this city!
Since returning, I've hit the ground running. On the music education side, I'm thrilled to announce that I've joined the music theory faculty of the Preparatory Division at Mannes College, part of The New School of New York. I've also joined the faculty of the Harmony Program and will be working with clarinet students in Harlem at PS 129 this upcoming school year. These are both great organizations and I'm so excited to be working with these wonderful students.
On the performance side, I look forward to reuniting with Ensemble Evolution for a residency in Boston and a performance at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention in Indianapolis this November! It's an honor to work with these talented musicians and I couldn't be more thrilled to collaborate with them again.
Additionally, I'm excited to share that my trio, Reeds Amis, will be diving into the obscure repertoire of French female composer, Fernande Decruck and recording some of her chamber music for woodwinds. More info to come, so stay tuned!
And last but not least, on the Zumba front, I'll be teaching 2 new classes starting the week of 8/25/13 and will be teaching open classes to the public periodically during the fall months. I frequently update my website with class info so be sure to check back! Click here to see my current schedule.
