Imagine a world where we
listen multidimensionally to ourselves and others,
stay open-minded about what we don't yet understand,

and find personal meaning in how we fit into the big picture.

Amidst the cacophony of our world, the art of listening is a much needed pathway forward to cohesion, deep communication, and collaboration. 

As a Steinway Artist, a music educator and owner of Nutmeg Studio, and creator of Conscious Listening seminars, I heighten awareness through music's many dimensions and cultivate a culture of listening through the lens of classical piano music.

I create joyful, personal, and creative experiences of Western classical music extending from its core repertoire into jazz, contemporary, early music, improv, and interdisciplinary projects: pairings with theater, dance, art, and wine. Participants, audiences, and students develop a personal relationship with the music as they listen communally. 

Transforming culture one note at a time...
