I make no promises this time, but i HOPE to be able to continuously update this blog throughout the next academic year. In the meantime I am making a quick post here to let my visitors know that I am redoing the entire site and it will (hopefully) be completed near the end of this month. A few things you can look forward to are:
I also intend to give more news updates here as to events or new performance dates. Yes, you can see those on the calendar, but you will be able to get a lot more information about the events here. Finally, I have a number of blog posts saved, but not shared, that I intend to publish soon that deal with education and pedagogy. If you find my insight on approaching education, performance, or program building helpful, you may share with your students. However, should you choose to do so, please email me and inform me.
I hope all the educators and students out there have a wonderful summer break! See you all in the classroom in the fall!
The editing process is slow while I try to update my site. However, I have uploaded a new section detailing the music education programs I am building at Coffeyville Community College. This section gives details about the programs, how we are establishing and developing them, and ways we are remaining active within our community.
As I continue making more content, I will include overall education initiatives including program building, establishing a private studio, building a successful chamber ensemble, and more.
The next post will provide advice and strategies for building your first private lessons studio. This will give you information that will prove helpful when starting your studio from scratch. There are many people in the music community who have built their private studios into their own businesses. This has been a major push in the saxophone community especially, entrepreneurship. I will tackle some of the more challenging aspects of getting started. I look forward to sharing it with you all.
Hello to all who visit my site. Thank you for being here.
First, I want to say that as I continue building the page content, I am going to begin this blog section as a means to post my thoughts and observations in the field of music education and performance, particularly those that have helped me throughout my own career. I hope you will find these posts valuable to your own continued music education and careers.
I appreciate any any all comments or thoughts you have regarding any topic.
Thank you, and enjoy the new site.
