I have taught elementary and middle school music in New York City for 15+ years.  My original school musicals integrate singing, movement, and drama with other aspects of the school curriculum, including social learning, history, science, and literacy.  In addition to years of classroom teaching, my musicals are informed by undergraduate studies in social relations at Cornell University (B.A., 1991), graduate studies in jazz guitar at the Manhattan School of Music (M.M., 1999), and a lifelong love of learning.
