After years as a full-time musician (an endeavor I began as a teenager), I gravitated towards teaching and obtained a master’s degree with a focus on creativity and education. I have formally and informally studied the creative process, various theories in creativity research, the role of systemizing and empathizing in creative works, and common struggles among individuals with high potential. My master's thesis focused on the role of literature while helping gifted and talented students gain self-awareness. In addition, as a creative myself, I've taught one-on-one guitar and song-writing classes for 10 years.

Homework OfferedHomework for this class is optional. However, ambitious students will walk away with several goals, exercises, and tasks for experimentation. If students are interested in reoccurring sessions with me, please let me know! I would be ecstatic to see similar students over longer periods of time for enhanced accountability and results.
Assessments OfferedInformal assessment will be used throughout instruction. Adjustments will be made based on the student's needs. These adjustments include decisions around goal-setting, advice offered (based on research), and optional next steps. Most of all, I hope students feel comfortable, encouraged, and ready for risks (not necessarily assessed).
