Publications

I am excited to have had a few articles published recently! Recent topics include Choral Elitism, Building a Culture of Vulnerability, and Hunting Choral Repertoire. I invite you also to follow my blog:
Published in the August 2019 edition of the Choral Journal is my most recent article "Let's Get Real: Creating a Culture of Vulnerability in Choir." This article addresses how to develop a vulnerable culture through accessing our most authentic version of ourselves. In addition to an in-depth discussion of the value of vulnerability, I provide seven sure-fire tools that will get your singers to the next level of emotional wellbeing. 
Published in the June/July 2018 edition of the Choral Journal, this article is entitled "Choral Elitism is Real: What It Is and What We Should Do about It." The blog version of this article went viral, which speaks to the need of our profession to have this uncomfortable discussion. I would encourage you to read it with an open mind and for all of us (myself included) to continue to look inward at what our role may be in this issue and what we ALL can personally do to begin to fix it.
Featured in the November 2018 Choral Journal, Andrew Crane from Brigham Young University interviewed 6 choral directors from around the United States on the topic of "Hunting Choral Treasure." I was honored to serve on this wonderful panel. All panel members provided a unique insight into how they go about finding quality repertoire. It's a fantastic article.
