The Virtual Choir is a global phenomenon, creating a user-generated choir that brings together singers from around the world and their love of music in a new way through the use of technology.

  • Hey gang! Thrilled to be heading back to Chicago this month for the Midwest Clinic. If you’re attending, I’d love to see you at my session!  In addition, a highlight for me is the chance to conduct the incredible Las Vegas Academy of the Arts Philharmonic playing my new orchestral transcription of ‘October’. Aaand... there are two "meet and greet" opportunities to give us the chance to say hello at either the Hal Leonard or Yamaha booth. I'll also be happy to sign a score or octavo if you'd like to bring one along. Here are the timings and locations of each of the events. Hope to see you there!
