It’s a sure sign of summer if the chair gets up when you do.
-Walter Winchell.

I hope everyone’s summer is flowing nicely and that folks have been inspired to engage in your respective creative endeavors. I have been inspired to engage in mine and would like to share a few highlights that I hope will inspire all of you!

In May, I was thrilled to present and perform with many talented colleagues from Music for People Improv Orchestra. We were invited as a special evening event at the Annual Conference for the National Association of Social Workers-NJ Chapter in Atlantic City, NJ. It has been a vision of mine to connect these two organizations together to highlight the powerful potential for using music improvisation to improve individual health and wellness and community connection. Here is a pic-


In June, I had the exciting opportunity to perform with the Dance Improv Ensemble at the Flow in Performance: Dalcroze Society of America’s National Conference and Symposium in Princeton, NJ.

Additionally, I just returned from the World Flute Society’s Convention held at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire campus. I had an opportunity to attend lively workshops, world class music performances, and meet talented flute makers and great people. So much fun getting to try out all these fabulous flutes! Here I am holding a “harmony drone” NA style flute. Simply put, this style flute allows the player to play a duet with him/herself. Check it out-

I am busy exploring and putting together additional workshops and performances to share ideas in creativity, self-expression, movement, and music. Stay tuned.

So I would love to hear from all of you. Better yet, I would love to play and share in creative music making with all of you! Please take a few moments to look at the upcoming events listed below and consider participating in one or all of them. I hope to see you soon!
