My score for the thriller teaser film is in the books! There are some heavy synth sounds in it that I’m excited about. I will keep you posted on the film's release date.
I just published a new bite-sized music theory class on how to build major scales: Music Theory 101: Major Scales.
The class is for musicians, songwriters and composers who want to expand their knowledge of music theory so that they can master their craft. You can enroll in the class here https://skl.sh/2Rknh2y
I was recently interviewed by Voyagela. In the article I speak a bit about my musical background, what I'm up to now and challenges that I've faced along the way.

A few months ago I started teaching private online music lessons on a platform called Care2Rock. They are an awesome organization that also provides free music lessons for children in foster care through a collaboration with National CASA Association.
As part of my teaching on the platform I have volunteered to give free music lessons to a 10 year old foster child in Chicago. We’ve only had a few lessons and he is already playing a Beethoven melody on piano. It has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done in music.
Anyways, Care2Rock has interviewed me about my musical background, including collaborating with Wu-Tang Clan members Black Knights and also what I’ve been up to lately. You can check out the interview here.
Today I had the great pleasure of conducting a read through of a new work that I recently wrote for 41 piece orchestra. Thank you so much Symphony 47 and AFM Local 47 for having me. So grateful!
