Taking leave from academia
Updated: Oct 19, 2021
As the school cycle kicks off, I'd like to share that I'm taking a leave from American University for the coming academic year.
After 2 years of serving as program director for the Music Program, through the ongoing COVID reality (somewhat pictured above) alongside a full teaching schedule, the time has come to press "pause" for a bit.
I'm looking forward to renewed, focused activity in my composing endeavors, and also having some time to reflect on what I've learned about teaching, education, and the arts in this peculiar time (and in general). I will have more to share on all those things–including news about some truly exciting creative projects–coming soon! I’m looking forward to many exciting collaborations.
PHOTO DESCRIPTION: my “COVID” journals, where I kept track of all Music Program related business during the past year of remote operations. Six spiral notebooks in an assortment of colors, each dated with monthly ranges, from June 2020 to August 2021.
