I bring students together and, using a wide variety of music to create joy and community.
I record original arrangements, part by part. Once these recordings are shared with my students, using the ancient practice of oral tradition, they listen at home and learn to sing harmony in community!

Maia Sinaiko was student of mine from the age of 10. I shot the video of her battle of the bands in middle school playing with my son Zack. She always loved Patti Smith. Maia wrote and sang in her own unique style, a distillation of her influences and has become a successful recording artist, and touring musician. A couple years ago at the Fillmore seeing Patti, out of the blue she got pulled up on stage.. check this out!
