My goal is to provide you and your organization exactly what you want.  We discuss your goals and then tailor what we will accomplish together.  Whether it's music mentorship for middle school bands, guest conducting of elite collegiate and adult groups, leadership coaching for groups and individuals, or consultation on organizational structures and strategic planning, my goal is to have your organization positioned for long-term success.

Guest Conducting

Guest Conducting of wind orchestras/concert bands, British-style brass bands, and orchestras.  While I have experience conducting the very finest musicians in the world, I'm equally comfortable and love working with musicians of middle school age.  Every ensemble and every musician can get better.  My goal as a guest conductor is not to have the focus on me, it's how I can enable your musicians to reach their full capability.

Leadership coaching for individuals and groups.  I've received advanced leadership training at the U.S.Army War College and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College and have over 20 years of successful command in our great U.S. Army.  I can translate that knowledge and experience to help arts organizations and their leaders (as well as leaders of any organization), to achieve their maximum potential.  From one-on-one sessions to "corporate retreats" using music ensembles to demonstrate how high performing organizations function, my goal is to make your team better.

Clinics and adjudication for wind orchestras/concert bands, British-style brass bands, marching bands, orchestras, and jazz bands.  I will help your organizations improve through positive and constructive suggestions.  I love working with musicians of all ages.

I'Organizational Consultant

Consultant on organizational structures and strategic planning.  I received a Master of Strategic Studies degree from the U.S. Army War College and led the Army Music Program through a worldwide transformation that revolutionized the way they provided music support for the Nation and the Army.  I can help your arts organization develop a strategic plan and suggest ways to better organize to achieve your goals.
