Lecture Series

Virtual Lecture Series

I have spent my career developing relationships with composers to build resources to authentically engage and program new music. I specialize in bringing to light the importance of inclusion in the music we program and teach. I focus on presenting works by marginalized composers and how performers and educators can build more diverse programs.

My presentation, Fanfare for the Unheard, shares incredible, underrepresented composers and their music. I offer lectures for all instruments, voice types, and departments, from middle school band, collegiate brass studios, and entire departments of music. I provide resources to help students and teachers continue their research into the music of underrepresented composers and how to apply representation and diversity to their programs.

I use my platform to create a space to learn about some fantastic pieces and reflect on how we program, teach and perform music. Standards and historically significant composers have a place in our repertoire. I provide insight and resources to integrate a diverse range of music into our programs.
