I teach kids how to rock

Job Executive Director / Maine Academy of Modern Music

Lives In Back Cove

I have been running fun, innovative music education programs in Portland for the last 10 years with some of the city's most diverse learners.  In addition to running the Maine Academy of Modern Music, I teach music to students with special needs at Spurwink and I have run music programs for the incarcarated youth at Long Creek Youth Development Center and at-risk teens at LearningWorks and the Boys & Girls Club, and offered after school lessons and summer camp programming at the Portland Conservatory of Music.  It's loud, fun, and rewarding work and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

And hey, what's not to LOVE about Portland?
