My teaching interests focus on the music of our time, including composition, new music ensemble, history of music since 1945 and recent performance practices.
My research explores the cultivation of a new audience for art music through the intersection of styles and genres inherent in the cross-culturalization of American society. To this end, I am working on a new paradigm of instruction in music improvisation through cross-cultural styles. Additionally, I am interested in the intersection of styles as they are affected by Jazz. This involves a project with Norwegian clarinetist Roger Arve Vigulf and the music of Gould, Bernstein and my own, and post-tonal implications in Wayne Shorter’s “Nefertiti”.
