Hello and Welcome! I am currently an Assistant Professor of Music Education at the University of Houston in Houston, TX. I am thrilled to be a part of the Moores School of Music’s community of musicians, scholars, and teachers.
I am passionate about children’s musicking, elementary and early childhood music teaching, and informal and vernacular music practices. If you have questions about music education at the University of Houston or about my research, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
