My academic credentials include BMus and MA degrees in music theory from McGill University, ARCT Piano Performer Diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Musicology Certificate from the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, and PhD in music theory from the University of Michigan.
Upon completion of doctoral studies, I became a postdoctoral fellow funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Izaak Walton Killam Memorial fund at the University of British Columbia. Prior to my appointment at Laurier, I was assistant professor of music theory at Dalhousie University and music director at St. Mary’s Basilica in Halifax, NS.
I have received numerous internal research and travel grants. Selected recent awards include:
I have opportunities for master of music therapy teaching assistants funded by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies as well as opportunities for undergraduate music students participating in the Faculty of Music Peer-Tutoring program.
I am willing to supervise directed studies in the area of music theory.
I am fascinated by how music is organized and passionate about helping students to discover how music theory can be valuable to their development as musicians.
