About Me

I am a music education researcher and teacher whose interests include both traditional music making like band and choir as well as non-traditional music making practices like rock bands, mediated music, and participatory music practices that are often seen in informal music learning and participatory culture.

Research

My research explores how people are using YouTube to consume, create, and share music as well as develop online communities and virtual identitities. I am particularly interested in creating vlogs and online musical performance videos and how that can be incorporated into the classroom.

Examples of Students' Work

Here you can see my past students' works and find other resources.

 

 

YouTube

I have a number of YouTube channels where I perform, teach, talk, and experiment with digital videos. So if you want to see my ideas, music videos, or ranting in virtual video form, explore my three YouTube channels. Please don't forget to like, subscribe, and comment on them. It helps to make my videos more visible on YouTube.

Some books I have written form in

Music Making on YouTube

My book chapter, Music Making on YouTube, is published in the Oxford Handbook for Music Making and Leisure. It was wonderful working with editors Roger Mantie and Gareth D. Smith as well as the peer reviewers. Grab it on Amazon!

Fanception & Musical Fan Activity on YouTube

My book chapter, Fanception and Musical Fan Activity on YouTube is now available. It was great working with the amazing participants of my research and using the movie, Inception as inspiration for developing a theory on media creation. Grab it on Amazon!
