In addition to private instruction, I lead songwriting workshops and performance ensembles through Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute. I work with students in the city’s juvenile justice system to help them share their personal experiences through music. I teach drums, guitar, piano, song writing and digital music production. With my guidance, students form ensembles that write, perform, and record their own music. In addition to music lessons, students sign up for roles in art design, marketing, lighting, and recording techniques to learn the skills necessary for concert and record production. I continue to teach in this capacity and enjoy the challenges and rewards of community outreach initiatives.
