I have recorded 5 albums as a singer-songwriter and sold thousands of albums as an indie artist. In addition, I have been a public school teacher for several years. Creating engaging lessons with creativity at their core is my passion. Curious about how my albums sound? Feel free to check out

I have owned a couple of personal businesses over the years as a full-time musician, wedding singer, guitar teacher, and writer. I love interviewing people about creativity and money as a freelancer. While writing as a side-hustle, I have consistently gravitated toward creative businesses.

Homework in this class will be optional. For example, students will be encouraged to make a list of ways to start experimenting with recording techniques (even on their current phone or computer).
Students are encouraged to attend with some way to take notes (tablet, notebook, or whatever's their style). 
Informal assessment (question and response) will be used to gauge student understanding.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
