Head to my contact page to request a Keynote, Workshop or individual tutoring. In person or online. 

Topics and themes of keynotes and workshops that I deliver are always tailored to the conference. Popular presentations draw from my years of high school teaching, teacher training and current doctoral work investigating how High School Music teachers use Digital Technologies in their classroom.  This is a continuation of  2018 research designing and leading a 20-week training course in Ableton Live and Push for High School Music Teachers. Other ongoing work details can be found on my 'About' tab. 

I also have limited spots for one-on-one tutoring for high school students and music teachers in Ableton Live and other Music technology.
