Music, regardless of quality or genre, is an aural representation of inexplicable emotions and ideas, encapsulated in a form that is easily recognizable, but perhaps not so easily understood. With this in mind, my ultimate goals as a musician are to foster a clear and inviting communication, to develop a penetrating and emotional connection, and to honor both past and present work of musicians and artists.
As a composer, my approach to each piece is highly individualized. Each piece is founded upon one central idea, which can be abstract, dramatic, literary, physical, numerical, or musical. My compositions, as most new "classical" music composed today, can not be easily labelled. Consequently, I firmly believe in utilizing all resources available to me, whether they be past techniques (counterpoint, sonata form) or modern developments (multimedia, minimalism). Moreover, in recognizing the size and breadth of my compositional palate, I do not simply want to utilize, but also to contribute. Lastly, I strive to adequately capture an emotional appropriateness for each composition, recognizing the need for being intrepid and uninhibited, as well as being subtle and obsequious.
As a pianist and conductor, my main goal is to provide the audience (and the composer, if applicable) with a unique, personalized interpretation - one that has been born through analysis and deep listening. As a pedagogue, I believe that the learning process should be enjoyable, and that every student, regardless of age or level, is a colleague who can contribute as much to my learning experience as I can to theirs.
