Have a question or comment you’d like to send my way that doesn’t seem to match up with any of the other categories in the “Contact” menu?  Zap an email to, or complete and submit this form:


Because I spend so much of my time in settings in which a ringing phone is a distraction, my phone does not ring and all calls go directly to voicemail, where they often languish for days or weeks before I even notice they’re there.  I strongly recommend using the form above to reach me—you’ll get a much faster response.

If you absolutely, positively must speak with me in real-time, please submit a request using the form above.  I’ll respond to schedule a call during my working hours, between other appointments.

TXT, SMS, Messenger

If you’re running late for a lesson and want to let me know you’re on your way, you may choose to send a text message or other “instant” message if you prefer.  But please do not use text messaging or its ilk to reschedule a lesson or ask any question that will require more than a few seconds’ thought.  These messages get buried quickly in my phone and I often lose track of them before I’ve responded.  Email is nearly always the best way to reach me.


If you have old-fashioned paper or other physical goods to send my way, please contact me first using the form above and I’ll be happy to provide the best physical address to send them to.

In any case…

Please understand that as a freelance musician there are often periods of several consecutive days during which I’m involved in lessons, rehearsals, and/or other focused work for up to 15 hours per day.  During these periods I generally do not respond to any but the most urgent of messages, and to others I can appear to be incommunicado.  I usually spend a day or two playing e-mail catch-up after emerging from these “crunch times,” but if you haven’t heard from me after a week or so I’d welcome a (gently worded) follow-up email.
