“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

                                     --Albert Einstein

It was my privilege to serve on the College Music Society’s Taskforce on the Undergraduate Music Curriculum and to be able to recommend that composition and improvisation be integral to a 21st century musician’s education. The outcome of this work together led to presentations at the CMS National Conference and the Summit 2.0 at University of South Carolina and our jointly written document, which has had significant impact:

Transforming Music Study from Its Foundations: A Manifesto for Progressive Change in the Undergraduate Preparation of Music Majors.
