I've taught K-6 General Music since 2008 and have experience teaching bands, choirs, rock groups, and musical theatre. I'm in the trenches every day! I know that there are kids we aren't connecting to in our traditional programs and so I've been a long-time advocate for including the authentic learning of popular styles in music classrooms along with creativity to enhance and modernize our existing programs.
I've played in multiple styles and genres over my career, from classical to ska, and from rock to jazz on a variety of instruments, and I'm a published author with an award-winning book. I'm also currently working on another one due sometime in 2019 and I'm a regular columnist in the Canadian Music Educator Journal.
