Thank you Professor Matthew Kline.
I had a great time teaching these gifted students. My colleague Matt Kline is the adult standing in the back row. He's done a fine job here.
Loved working with this very talented group of future piano teachers.
Sarofim School of Fine Arts
Thank you Professor Dana Zenobi
A beautiful space for eurhythmics, solfège ... thanks so much for the opportunity!!!!
They had their first Dalcroze Solfège class. It blew their minds...
Had a great time working on changing meter ... what a joy!
Worked with the "horse and buggy" to gain the experience of the resistance between the beat and rhythm...
So great working with Drama students again... we worked on moving from the core and creating crusic phrases in space.
My former student Lois Ferrari from Ithaca College is in the back row, third from the left. Thanks Lois for your continued support even after all these years!

Thank you Professor Darlene Wiley
I love watching the faces change from "this is a crazy man" to "OMG this guy makes sense."
It's so great working with students who all play the same instrument. Making the lesson relevant to their musical lives is much easier.
The future of vocal teaching is in good hands with these fine grad students. We did anacrusic phrasing combined with changing meter. Great fun.
Note that we moved to the Recital Hall with wood floor, and two beautiful 9' Hamburg Steinways, which may be the best pianos made on earth. These students are so fortunate!
Honored to work with such talented piano doctoral students. They were fascinated with the pure rhythmic modes since they exist in every piece as an underlined rhythm. I truly enjoyed their personalities and their musicianship...
We worked very hard at creating phrases with the pure rhythmic modes. These talented singers were a delight to teach....
So great to work with a small group of young women who were excited about learning. With them the harp is well represented...
An extraordinary class of young musicians who were excited to learn a new way of approaching musicianship and music making. What a joy to work with these very gifted students.
We discovered that the CRUSIS lifts and the ANACRUSIS falls as we learned the Greek Rhythmic Modes, a very difficult first class...
