Favorite TMC Moment
In Music Cats class, we do a “creative listening” exercise where the kids listen to a famous piece of classical music. After we listen, they come and whisper to me the image that the music created in their mind. I love hearing all the creative things they pull from the music. Such a special and fun moment!

When I'm not making music, I'm...
Busy as an adjunct saxophone instructor at Perimeter college, playing in local musical theater productions, composing for an original jazz big band, and teaching lots of music lessons! When I’m not busy with all of that, I enjoy spending quality time with my fiancé and our cat.
