As a choral conductor, I have participated in many masterclasses with professors across the country. I worked with Dr. Jerry Blackstone, Dr. Eugene Rogers, and Dr. Julie Skadsem of the University of Michigan, Dr. William Weinert of the Eastman School of Music, Dr. Joesph Flummerfelt of Westminster Choir College, Dr. Ann Howard Jones, formerly at Boston University, and Dr. Craig Hella Johnson of Conspirare. While at UNC Greensboro, I studied conducting privately with Dr. Carole Ott. During that time I was able to conduct the University Chorale in concert, do an honors thesis on the influences of modern choral music
while under the supervision of Dr. Welborn Young, attend graduate level conducting seminars, and participate in the 2013 ACDA Choral Conducting Competition.
