Excited to be back at UWO this coming semester. Highlights for the year are teaching two new trial courses: Arts Administration and Advanced Entrepreneurship for Musicians.
BCMCC has partnered with the Meq Quigley Vivaldi Competition to perform the 2012 winning works at their Symposium on January 19, 2014.
I am an active bassoonist, teacher, and researcher. My research was affiliated with the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and I am a lecturer in music business at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. In my three years at UWO I’ve increased the music business course offerings by 66% by writing new curricula
on hot topics in the field. My PhD research has lead me to guest lecture at Universities throughout the USA on injury prevention for musicians; currently I’m focusing my research on strength training in the scapulo-thoracic region and flexibility training.
An entrepreneur at heart, I’ve founded two companies: Bassoon Chamber Music Composition Competition, Inc. and Aerial Dance. My background in business was established at Northwestern University and Indiana University during my degrees. In June 2013 I resigned as director of the BCMCC and moved to an advisory position on the board so I could pursue other ventures. Some of my current projects include creating merchandising lines, implementing marketing strategies that focus on the connected generation, and developing new curricula that takes into account my PhD research for dance fitness and musician health.
