About My Work:

I am a choral conductor, classically-trained flutist, arts administrator, and lover of sacred song, ritual, and chant. I work with community groups–congregations, women’s groups, support groups, incarcerated populations, and more–to create joyous and empowering experiences that liberate everyone’s creative voice through singing, chanting, song-leading, body percussion, music improvisation, and/or the creation of meaningful and participatory rituals that engage all the senses.  I frequently work in collaboration with other artists including visual artists, drummers, and dancers.

Pricing Information:

Individuals interested in classes and workshop will pay fees that vary from $15 for a single session to $250 for a weekend retreat (inclusive of food/lodging).

Congregations interested in choir workshops, public workshops, and/or creation of creative Sunday services (music and sermon) will pay fees ranging from $250 – $1,000 depending upon complexity and scope.

Community rituals are most often free.
