Welcome! This website is designed to keep everyone up-to-date with my latest projects. I’m currently a Music Teaching & Learning PhD student at Eastman School of Music. I’m researching how music technology is implemented in music classrooms. Feel free to browse around to view past projects I’ve worked on.
To inform and improve future music teacher professional development, the purpose of this survey study is to document the opinions and experiences of K-12 music teachers regarding professional development, as well as their perceived professional development needs. Factors under investigation include teaching experience, topics of interest or areas of need, past experience with professional development, and current views of online professional development. Alumni from a major university that are current K-12 music teachers will be asked to participate in this survey. The researchers aim to provide insight on how the needs of experienced music teachers differ from newer teachers, which could help further the development of authentic and personalized online professional development programs.
