I offer workshops for general music teachers as well as regular classroom teachers and other specialists with an emphasis in movement, Responsive Classroom, Orff, jazz, teaching without words, and more. Check out some of my previous workshops below and reach out if you are interested in having me visit your school, district, or chapter! Always feel free to connect with me through social media or email me here.

The calm yet exciting energy you provide as a teacher and leader, and the grace and purpose with which you move as you teach are truly inspiring.
