Education should be accessible to everyone.

I create free music education eLearning materials. This page will be updated monthly. Topics include:

  • LilyPond tutorials
  • music theory
  • sound design/synthesis
  • interactive flashcards
  • how to compose music cues for podcasts/TV/games/online media

Music education doesn’t actually stop with just music.

Music education can introduce children and adults to an entirely different way of thinking about things: problem solving, team building, working with others, commitments, and setting / achieving goals.

After all, where would any of us be without teachers?
