NEW TO YOU IN 2015

 

What others are saying about me & my stuff...

"I have been exposed to your work a few times since the day I was introduced to it at your "Get Off the Podium" workshop at Midwest Clinic 2012. 

I took several notes during that workshop, and went home to my university in Utah raving to all of my music education friends about how much I learned from it - and how this "Belah Sun Woman" piece could absolutely change the way we approach teaching for the better.  I wanted to take the time to thank you for your wonderful work, which has inspired me and changed how I will approach teaching."
