Preparatory for studies or careers in
Kicking around plans for future studies and careers will be an important, ongoing part of our work together.

Please send me a preliminary proposal via email and I'll help you shape it.  I often recommend projects that combine some research (on an artist or style) with some creative work (a thematic portfolio or series of songs), with some technical practice (on an instrument or in a medium or style). Internships and travel/study projects are also welcome.  I'm especially interested in students who work in more than one artistic discipline intensively; for instance, music and visual art.  Drafting academic statements and investigating careers--vital parts of designing your own education--can also be credit-bearing activities.
