I am continuously reminded that my work has the broadest impact in the classroom, so I spend a lot of time thinking about teaching, pedagogy, and curricula.
I value students’ diverse multidisciplinary interests within music studies and tailor my syllabi to every particular group. I encourage students to respond to and learn from each other, not just to/from me. My courses place emphasis on the transferrable skill of writing, starting with traditional essays but also exploring co-authored writing, correspondence with students in a differently-oriented Music course, writing grant applications, editing Wikipedia, producing multimedia projects, and editing the work of others.
A teaching video from my 2016 seminar Sexing Sound Art is available here. Please contact me for a password if you would like to view the video.
