I am Lewis and Clark's Music Department Head. I teach orchestra, choir and general music. I have two BA degrees: one in Music Theory / Composition and another in Music Education K-12. I have been playing the piano since I was 7, it is my first love.
This is my 8th year here at LCMS and 10th year teaching orchestra and choir in the school setting. We have great music programs at LCMS. I am especially proud of my Orchestras and Choirs. Our programs continue to grow every year. I very much enjoy my job, especially giving the gift of music to new students and cultivating students' musical interests.
I am married and a father of 4 great kids and one grandchild. I love to fly fish and snow ski. I am music composer/arranger working in indie films, TV and radio advertising and works for hire. I have several music groups with 6 CDs commercially released. And in my spare time I teach private piano lessons.
I am looking forward to a great year.
